It all comes down to core strength. Both climbing and sprinting require a stable torso, which means lots of core strength. And you are engaging your glutes more, which causes you to place further demands on your back. Now everyone climbs differently from other people. Same for sprinting. As a result, there's no hard and fast rule about fit. And except for a few rare events you aren't going to be fitting a road bike solely for sprinting or climbing. What holds everything together is your flexibility and strength on the bike.
