In reponse to "Josh" claiming Pinnacle Buttress (Mt. Washington, NH) is barely a 5.4. Though there are some very easy sections, there are several sustained 5.5-5.6 pitches and some moves could qualify as 5.7 (or even 5.8 with variations). For the moderate climber, this is a challenging climb not to be underestimated. Also, keep in mind that there is no reliable fixed protection. That this route may be trivial to some expert climbers is no reason to mislead those who would take the difference between 5.4 and 5.7 very seriously.

Lion Head is not Class 1 particularly in winter, it is as tough or worse than Tuckerman Ravine or Ammo Ravine so should be 1-3

Crawford Path former bridle path and now mostly A.T., long and exposed to weather but probably Class 1 in summer

Davis Path also former bridle path in the woods nearly the whole way, Class 1

Dry River Trail partly old logging railroad, potentially difficult stream crossings, Class 1

Glen Boulder Trail similar in difficulty to Boott Spur Trail which you call 1-2

Great Gulf Trail has a long talus slope at headwall and some brook crossings, call it 1-3

Jewell Trail has tedious rocks in footway but probably only Class 1
