Cabling on barend shifters usually exits the handlebar tape (this is for drop bars) about halfway up the drops and then curves down to the frame's housing stops. It is possible to run the housing all the way to the stem as you would for Campy Ergos or recent STIs and I've seen this done successfully. The extra housing does make for more friction so try to keep the curves as open as possible.
