Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Beautiful, high-centered, cerise-pink flowers with an overwhelming Bourbon fragrance make this climbing rose a knockout in spring and fall. The canes are thornless and the dark green foliage is thick and very healthy, displaying coppery purple new growth making a vivid contrast with the pink blossoms. A perfect rose to train up a porch column where you will pass it often, or for use where children may be playing. Although this climber has been promoted as a shade grower and bloomer, we can not support that statement."

I planted one of these roses at my sister's house. On the north side and with a roof overhang, that area only gets an hour or so of morning sun and is in shade the rest of the day. While it does not flower as abundantly as it would with more sunshine, it does set flower and flourish. Might not do so well with NO sun in full shade, but I would be very comfortable in saying it should be fine planted in a shady area.
If you never ask, the answer is always 'no.'
