There are a few bouldering areas at Index.

Getting There 

The Lower Wall boulders include those just below the Lower Town Wall, in the talus area near Thin Fingers, and at the Country. These are all reached via the Lower Wall trail. Several scattered boulders lie in the flat area on the trail to Lookout Point, and the river has a bouldering area reached by driving past the Lower Lump.

The Engineer V9 7C  Washington : Index : ... : Zelda Boulders
Start on the right side of the slab and work your way up the arête. Set up on a pinch out left, then either throw to the hueco, or make a tenuous reach on smeary feet. Work your feet up and throw to the lip. It's a jug!The hueco seems to be a ball of quartz that has eroded away to form a hold. The rock inside is friable, but there is a good crimp on the left side as well as a bomber undercling on the top right.
