For the moderate climber this is one of THE routes to do at Pinnacles. Long, fun and airy at the top. It is possible to TR the first part of the route off of some midway anchors, but is not really recommended because this route sees a lot of traffic.
This classic has some run spots on easier ground. The first moves can be protected with .75 camalot or so sized piece and some small cam placements in a horizontal above that.

If you take the caves trail and head through the first cave, as the path leads up towards Discovery Wall and either heads to a fork where you can either go back to the right parallel with the rock, or runs into it, Portent is the route in the first small dip that follows this dip up and left to a pair of rusty anchors that can be seen about 70 feet off the ground.
FYI you cannot rappel from the top of this route (the bolts do not have rings). The walk off is uphill, then straight back to the main trail (there are some climber access signs). Turn right and follow that trail around until you get back to the base of Discovery wall.
Also, don't bother taking gear beyond the very start; there is no gear after the bolts start (and they are fairly far apart).

I'm not sure that Felix is using the words "sport climb" like most climbers use them. As I've understood that term (since it came into use in the 1980s) it means a closely bolted route. Stated another way, the phrase does not apply to just any bolted route, it applies to one where the bolts are specifically quite close together.
Portent is a bolted route - the only possible gear would be used within 10 feet of the ground. But it is most certainly not a "sport route" (as the many "R" ratings given in this thread would seem to confirm).
