Me on top of Chianti Spire

The lower wall at Index gets warm, but not too bad. There are some other crags scattered around (Private Idaho, Rattletale, Wall of 10,000 Insects, etc) that are probably nice and shady most of the day. Upper Town Wall probably starts to cool off around 3 or 4 pm.

For Leavenworth, Pearly Gates is north-facing and will be cool early and late in the day, and is the best bang-for-your-buck crag to boot. Castle Rock in the morning would be cool too. I'm sure there are some other decent options too, but the real money would probably be cragging in the AM and floating the river with a beer in the afternoon when it gets really hot.

Have fun!

Index is awesome right now. Morning climbing is good, and climbing after 4p.m. anywhere on the crag.

I'd go with Pearly Gates in Leavenworth for this time of the year. And if it gets to hot just dip into icicle creek or do some bouldering in the shade of the forest.
