What is the hardest part of the Spanish tree?

I have made it to V. Past (Verbs: Past Tense), but I haven't gone through the 10 practices yet. To me, it seems a little daunting. It made me wonder, if there is a part(s) of the tree that are much harder then others? Is there a "hump" to get over, where it is more so down hill from there. Or is it just a steady ascent to the top?

It would be good to hear from people who finished the tree, but anyone can say if they found a certain area difficult (and maybe how far you are so far?).

EDIT: I am giving a lingot to those responding to my question!

The last lessons on verbs are the hardest to me (and, I believe, the hardest lesson in spanish grammar for english-speaking learners)

The "countries" section and some of the sections after that (like Directions, Abs. Ob. 1, Education) were easy; I remember completing many lessons without even losing a heart. The Subjunctive part was hard for me at the beginning, because I didn't know how to use subjunctive then. Some of the verbs at the end may be a little tricky too.

Yo hablo español y creo que tienen razón quienes dicen que los verbos irregulares y el subjuntivo son muy difíciles. Las preposiciones pueden ser difíciles para los hablantes de inglés porque las usamos de manera diferente. Come on! I wish the best for you. Don't give me lingots, I have a lot, thank you.

Object pronouns. And then just the sheer number of tenses/moods multiplied times all the conjugations for them gets a bit overwhelming towards the end.

In my opinion, the hardest part of Spanish tree is Conjugación irregular.

It differs from person to person. For me it was the use of 'se'. Even some common things such as 'para' vs 'por', use of 'a' after a verb troubled me a lot.

I had a heck of a time with Modal Verbs : I just remember it being incredibly fussy about what it wanted
