what is difficult for some is easy for others. You shouldnt use other peoples opinions on difficulty as your own, because the ONLY way you can find out if its difficult for you is to try it yourself. People here hare also on different levels, some have been playing for a year, some for many more, so their answers will be different.

but if you desperatly need other peoples opinions to form your own then go ahead.

It's rather easy (lol ...) compared to others because of how logical its sequence is.  It also fits nicely under the fingers.

If you have smaller hands it may be harder, and you may find it hard to have the melody flow with the odd way it is constructed.

For us musicians, the music of Beethoven is the pillar of fire and cloud of mist which guided the Israelites through the desert.  (Roughly quoted, Franz Liszt.)

It is impossibly hard.
the OC is easier.

j/k, but from where I am as a pianist, it's just out of my reach.
