I see a lot of trad climbing here - is there any good sport (lead) climbing?

There is a little bit of sport climbing. Some runout slabs on polished granite will make you think a little harder about that 5.7 grade. Some of those climbs are one to three pitches on a small dome.

A couple other walls have some short and steep routes a little harder in grade.

I highly recommend this book.

It has topos/directions to the sport climbs but Id say that most of the book is about trad.

The best cragging, in my opinion, for sportweens can be found just outside the park @ the Tioga/Private Property cliff. Lots of new stuff going up recently...even a couple of 11's to warm up on.
