Description 

Enduro Man is another good North End route that doesn't see a lot of traffic. While maybe not as aesthetic as some of it's neighbors, it has great rock, interesting moves with a well-defined crux, and tricky but good gear. Oh yeah, and it's steep too.

Location 

Between the Recommendation and Filet. Look for a shallow, overhanging dihedral/crack system with melons about ten feet left of Filet. While you can do the same start as for Filet, it is also possible to do an unprotected 5.9ish start to the left that makes it an independent line- recommended.

Protection 

All gear. A set of nuts (with micros), small to medium cams, and Tri-cams (read: necessary) will suffice. The gear is all good, but kind of tricky in spots and therefore very pumpy to place.

a good one for training your sloper form; doesn't get the traffic worthy of its quality.

Definitely another north end classic. Certainly under appreciated. While not as sustained as filet it does contain a more defined and perhaps more difficult crux and the same great gear trickery.

Enduro is all about hanging in there to get the pro. It's safe, but if you bypass protection or settle for questionable gear, you can get in trouble.
