According to the paper "The TFL1 homologue KSN is a regulator of continuous
flowering in rose and strawberry" (Iwata et al.), 'Climbing Peace' is once-blooming whereas 'Peace' blooms continuously.

Reading the comments and looking at the photos it seems that Peace Cl. is generally a sparse bloomer, but there are some photos from August/September.

I should have read closer before posting:

"....the restoration of RoKSN in climbing mutants may not be complete as flowering can occur occasionally in the autumn."

Clearly, that is what's happing in 'CL. Peace'

A very good and healthy blooming climbing rose is climbing Gold Badge. If you are having problems with no blooms on cl. Peace try this rose.

Wow, my Climbing Peace actually had a nice flush of blooms a while back, which was a delight, but the foliage has remained as badly blackspotted as ever argggh!!!

Tony, lucky you! Here it is October and I never had a single bloom this year again. It is, however, covered in black spot like yours. I'm not going to bother to dig it out this fall but next spring it's outta here! There are too many others on my want list to let this one take up prime space.

I see you're in PA. I'm in MI zone 6. Do you have any climbers you'd recommend?

Hi! Sorry to hear about your finicky Climbing Peace. I as you know have a love-hate relationship with mine...I love it when it decides to bloom, but hate it at all other times, which is nearly always. It is a blackspot magnet without equal and and a finicky unpredictable grower, sometimes doing nothing for a long stretch and then shooting up a 6 or 7 foot cane in what seems like days, then there is the cane dieback that pops up now and again. So, on to more worthy climbers... If you don't mind a once bloomer, one gorgeous creature is Alchymist. It produces a good amount of blooms on an established plant and the blooms are absolutely gorgeous. Just don't plant it where it would be exposed to intense sun such as a southern or southwestern exposure without some afternoon shade... a western exposure is fine as well as an area with overhead afternoon shade especially in the summer. Given that and minimal care it should satisfy if once blooming is ok.
If you prefer a repeat bloomer, the super hardy William Baffin should be a fine choice. It will take zone 6 without flinching. It can be grown as a large arching shrub, or a climber if you wish. Others I've heard good things about but do not grow and have no experience growing are Golden Showers and Altissimo. I have seen Golden Showers in other gardens and must say, it does look pretty!
