Hi. It is hard to tell how big the container is from your pictures, but if it is too small for the plant, it might be difficult for the roots to absorb nutrients even if you give it everything it needs. Just a thought. I am sure others here will have suggestions.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

It might just be it's time, beginning of Autumn/Fall. Most roses don't hold on to their leaves forever, it only looks like lower/older leaves based on the pics (the newer leaves look fine), they may have just reached their time.
Anyone with oryzalin (aka Surflan, Embargo), am looking for a small amount rather than 5litres from manufacturer (min size in Australia....)

I'm inclined to agree with Protoavis. The green leaves look pretty healthy to me.

Looks like the others are spot on about the yellow leaves, they have just died of old age.You need to get rid of the twiggy -thin growth which will never amount to anything, its too small keep this out of your plant. The growth canes should be larger than a pencil for a large climber as yours is.Cut this small stuff out down to the growing point.In the future any tiny growth that starts to grow break it off as soon as you can tell its smaller than a pencil.Remember every time you water a container you wash out fertilizer. A good idea is to get water soluble fertilizer and dilute lower than it says, Most are 1Tbls per gl of water.I would use 1/2 that and use each time you water.I have grown roses since the 1960's. Maybe this info can help you.
