Brittle when wet
Not a classic. The first of the major chimney lines accessible without scrambling up the descent gully. The length of this climb is preposterous but it wasn't worth repeating in full to correct the description. If you wish to do so, go ahead. The various possible lines at the top of 'Strela' have all been done as variants to 'Indentured', 'Strela' and 'Filling'.
Start: Start at the first chimney line R of the foot of the descent gully.
21m (14) (crux) The first 10m is hard but protection is OK (large cams). Ascend the chimney (crux passing a bulge of dirt) until a second chimney starts on the R. Traverse R into this chimney and continue to a ledge 4m higher.
37m (-) The bottomless chimney and follow the same line to ledge on the buttress between the two chimneys.
37m (-) Step across the L-hand chimney then traverse, and up to regain the R-hand chimney. Up to below the prows near the top of the cliff.
9m (-) Deep chimney.
First Ascent: Dave Oldfield & John Rogers (Alt), 1967
