All climbers should be left unpruned for the first 2-3 years after planting to allow the plants to get established and produce their long, flexible canes. Most bloom comes from lateral branches that grow from these long canes. Sounds as though your new plant is putting out the new growth required for blooming. You can prune out any dead or twiggy growth this year, but leave the canes that are developing. Next year you should have a few blooms and the following year you can expect an abundance of blossoms.
