Haven't done these, but they're definitely in the 5th class category.

Voted 10/10

Definitely 5th class, likely harder than .10+, as the "easiest" line looks like a west facing arete with hard climbing above it.

Twin Thumbs (South): Easy class 3 with one boulder move to touch the top.

I have heard many people say NE Crestone is 4th class. few people usually rope up for it. Have you done it?

Yes, I've climbed Northeast Crestone. It can be tough to differentiate between 4th class & 5.0. I believe Lou Dawson's guidebook calls it 4th class, so maybe it should be left off the list. How about Peak Sixteen?

Ah Peak Sixteen should be on the list...good catch there.
I have a few friends who have done NE crestone and said it was only 4th class. I'll add Peak Sixteen though

Hmmm I always thought the rock on top of Whitney was more of a bouldering problem. When I think of 5th class climbing I think of roped pitches. What do you think? I'll put it in if you think it really warrants it but I know a couple guys who just leaped up and onto the top of it.
BTW, what about the towers at Garden of the Gods? I believe there are 5th class towers there. I'll look but if you know of any let me know!

I've climbed many of the peaks on this list sans rope: Jagged, Teakettle, Peak Fifteen, Coffeepot, Peak Sixteen, Rabbit Ears, PT 10093, The Castle, South Sheeprock & Raleigh, so I'm not sure if roped pitches should be a criterion for list inclusion. So, I would add Whitney.
