I know some people get confused when they see an old climb with bolts, but they are like 30'+ apart and think it's a sport climb, but it is actually still considered a traditional line.
From my understanding a standard "sport" climb has bolted protection spaced 6' to 10' apart. If you need to place gear also it should be labeled a "sport/trad". Some label it "mixed"
But mixed climbing is also when you climb using crampons and picks on rock and ice like this.
Therefore I believe it's better when they are labeled "sport/trad to cause less confusion.
