Bolts 2-4 on Snowball's Chance. The crux comes while moving left from the  Loser's Club dihedral into the left dihedral. The draws give a small taste of how steep this line actually is. 
 <br />
 <br />The final sequence was so tricky, I tested perhaps the 20th sequences before I settled on one that would be repeatable. I imagine someone stronger could muscle through it, but that sounds heinous.  Snowball's Chance is the leftward dihedral. After the first bolt, a fun rightward traverse temporarily meets up with Loser's Club for three moves before heading left underneath the sharp arete.  How you clip your bolts is very important on Limelight, clipping standard draws could result in a shredded rope. 
 <br />
 <br />Clip #4 with a sling. Then bolt #5 of Piano Hoist can be clipped with a double length runner, or back cleaned. Skipping it is possible, but the fall would be ugly. The next bolt is nice to have clipped long. 
 <br />
 <br />All this keeps the rope out of the dihedral and away from two sharp knife edges.  Piano Hoist and Limelight  The Blade goes out left, and the Slice of Life cuts out right.
