Endeavor to Persevere tackles the steep arete on the right side of the Killer Cave. It may be the most aesthetic line in Sinks Canyon, and it is certainly one of the best in the Lander area.
Start on a large boulder under the roof. The first 4 bolts are the crux with big moves and a hard clip at bolt 3. You get a good rest in the crack after clipping bolt 4. Some folks use a kneebar.
There is another 13a crux pulling over the overhang onto the main part of the arete between bolt 6 and 8. There is a decent shake to the left of bolt 9. A 5.12 move a few bolts higher keeps you honest on the redpoint burn.
