Description 

As the name implies, this route is sporty and there has been some discussion about retro-bolting this. And for this reason I suspect that this route is not well traveled. The first bolt is off the ground a bit and requires some delicate movement to get to it. The second bolt is then a fair distance away; from what I recall the climbing is straightforward but blowing it here will possibly land you on the ground, bouncing off the tree at the base in the interim. After the sweaty palms and heartburn of this first section, the route eases up and is fairly unremarkable.

I recommend doing this once just for giggles; but, the line is nothing special given that the crux is down low.

Location 

This route is located immediately to the right of Centipede and in front of a tree.

Protection 

3 or 4 bolts plus anchors.
