Jonathan Siegrist has done his 33rd 9a, Manphibian in Mt Charleston. "Strength endurance underclings and squeezing with a full-on slab crux finish!" More info on his Insta.

Including also two 9b's and nine 9a+', the 167 cm tall should be in the All Time Top-10 sport climbers. Next up is finishing bolting his big multi-pitch project.

adjective[ aj-ik-tiv ]

Grammar. any member of a class of words that modify nouns and pronouns, primarily by describing a particular quality of the word they are modifying, as wise in a wise grandmother, or perfect in a perfect score, or handsome in He is extremely handsome. Other terms, as numbers (one cup; twelve months), certain demonstrative pronouns (this magazine; those questions), and terms that impose limits (each person; no mercy) can also function adjectivally, as can some nouns that are found chiefly in fixed phrases where they immediately precede the noun they modify, as bottle in bottle cap and bus in bus station.
"Including also two 9b's and nine 9a+', the 167 cm tall climber should be in the All Time Top-10 sport climbers. Next up is finishing bolting his big multi-pitch project."

OR

"With two 9b's and nine 9a+', the 167 cm tall Siegrist should be in the All Time Top-10 sport climbers. Next up is finishing bolting his big multi-pitch project."
You gotta include the noun you're modifying with the adjective.

Quote:
The sentence wouldn’t make complete sense, if we leave out the noun after the adjective. However, a noun which has already been mentioned is often left out after an adjective.

pbla4024, you left out the rest of the quotes in that website where it describes the situations where you can leave out the noun. It specifically describes leaving them out when you're describing a group.

The + adjective

The structure the + adjective (without a following noun) is used to talk about certain groups of people. Examples are: the blind, the dead, the deaf, the disabled, the accused, the injured, the unemployed etc.

The injured were taken to the hospital.
The disabled are God’s special children.
He is collecting money for the blind and the deaf.
The government should do something for the unemployed.


In this case, Johnathan Siegrest is not a group of anything and the adjective is not descriptive enough of the man (his height) to use it in place of the man, so it's not proper to use The + adjective form.

I quoted the rule relevant for this case, I would say article should not be there:
"With two 9b's and nine 9a+', 167 cm tall should be in the All Time Top-10 sport climbers. Next up is finishing bolting his big multi-pitch project."
Maybe we can ask Cathy Wagner :-D
