In the top image of fredk's post, the dagger looks like it could be the continuation of a mountain stream. Perhaps water pouring down the hillside in a narrow stream could provide the force needed to carve the dagger.

Maybe I'm wrong but, sorry, I really doubt : otherwise we would have seen many of those kind of "watery" features on other slopes around the rim of Endeavour Crater where, I think, there is at least a minimum of continuity in its geological features. Why just a stream here and not elsewhere dry.gif ?
Anyway, I agree with you that the Dagger is a strange feature and that it worths a visit...

Looks like Oppy reached the top of the ridge.

Agreed, and also there's the slope problem: the slope at the "Dagger" is into Endeavour, so basically perpendicular to the length of the Dagger. And it's presumably been like that as long as Endeavour's been here.
