Oddly I was thinking of this what-is-trad question a week back after leading a pitch that had six shiny bolts and two weak cams in 170 feet. That doesn't sound very trad but sure felt like it.

Plus, I was wearing white pants.

Tarbuster,

a trad climber is not one who does only both bolt only free climbs and bolt only climbs whose bolts were established by top rope.

It used to be just "climbing" until the advent of sport climbing led to the deignation of trad to distinguish between the two. I like both along with alpine climbing.....so for me it's still just going climbing
