    a somewhat difficult task
    a not so easy challenge
    an "it is easy to see" theorem
    a partly difficult task
    an easy feat
    almost like "finding an expression for 'medium difficult' "

    I would fully agree with the first two of your suggestions. Generally I would solve this by saying: "of medium difficulty."
