I posted the list withot fully knowing it. Any confusions are due to that. As to your question, many of the aveiros are divided into sections, i think all after the first four (my list may have innacuracies, greens' list is better), and many of them are classified by the Rambam and others as aveiros which aren't neccesarilly themselves worse than others, it's just harder to do teshuvah for them for the reasons you mentioned. Other aveiros listed are among the worst, such as those that fall under the category of apikorsus, those that cause many to sin, and those that hurt many people like loshon horah. In addition, it's seems like a logical assumption that serious aveiros require more teshuvah, which is harder; and aveiros that are hard to do teshuvah for are often compounded by doing them multiple times or thinking you're already doing bad so you might as well continue aveiros, which makes those aveiros more serious. Maybe the reason for not observing/honoring Chol Hamoed being listed is that it's not considered a big deal, it's often ignored completely. the Shaarei Teshuvah when discussing that, mentions people eating chametz on Chol Hamoed Pesach! if it wasn't for hotel stays and whatnot, people might think they could be lenient, just as the mitzvah of Sukkah is sometimes forgotten during Chol Hamoed Succos. I just looked something up, and it seems i may have this all wrong, and the problem there is Chillul Yom Tov with Chol Hamoed listed as an example.
I found this in a different list, in Meam Loez on Mishayos Avos, on the introductory paragraph to Pirkei Avos. The language there is very harsh, but it's another place to find this list. It's called the Torah Anthology in the english translation.
now that I've written this entire megillah in rsponse to your one sentence, can someone more knowledgable than me clarify thse things?

This is the list from the Rambam's Mishneh Torah. Hilchos Teshuvah, I believe t was the third perek. All of the specifications above apply.
1-13: various types of minim, apikorsim, and deniers of the thirteen principles of Judaism and deniers of the Torah. I saw a thread on what falls under these categories in the Basic Judaism section, here's the link:
there are additional ones listed seperately, whioch are less severe but if done often can be just as serious

the question was how bad do we have to be. frankly, I think we don't know, b/c we don't know how G-d thinks
