Lonnie Kauk repeats the „Magic Line“ (8c + / 5.14c) trad in Yosemite. The Trad route was first ascented with preplaced gear by his father Ron Kauk in 1996. This „blemish“ Lonnie could now eliminate. He placed all gears in lead. The route is considered one of the hardest Trad routes in the world. So far, no route has yet been rated with 9a.
