I usually just tighten the bolt until the cranks and everything is firm. So, I don't torque the crap out of the bolt, but make is firmly tight. I use profiles, so no pinch bolt on my cranks, but you are correct. First the spindle bolts are tightened then the crank arm bolts. The crank arm bolts are tightened about the same. Firm, you don't want to break those bolts inside the crank arms. They just keep the crank arm from wiggling around, they aren't to hold the crank arm on, so firmly tight is plenty.
