The crux at the bottom of Comes in quartz, 5.10.

Description 

Crimp up the fun dike past 2 bolts. After clipping the second bolt, leave the dike and climb directly up the face above and mantel onto a ledge. Fish in a small stopper behind the horn. From here, you have two options - go up and right past a bulge where you can get a good .75 inch cam and pull up onto a stance, or trend up and left across the face and follow a small corner up and right to the same stance. The first option has better gear and harder moves. The second option, although easier, doesn't protect as well. From the stance, look for a small cam placement and then pull the bulge. Continue up ramps to the chains.

Protection 

2 bolts, gear to 2 inches. Note that the hanger on the first bolt is slightly flattened, but still clippable and solid.

A very nice steward of Index replaced the hanger of first bolt.
