I love the Cecile Brunner Climbing Rose. It requires Full Sun, but, I've been told it will also grow in Zone 5, with partial shade, is this true?

I'm afraid shade tolerance in roses is a myth. You'll be encouraging diseases, and your climbing rose will climb but won't bloom. Find a sunny spot - even if you have to plant it in a container and prop a trellis up against a wall. You'll be glad you did!
