Bend them over carefully, horizontally, and the climbers for sure will bloom at almost every node.

Same goes for any member of the rose family, like blackberries and raspberries. I tied down my black raspberry canes to horizontal wires last late winter and I had a bumper crop of berries this past summer...like never before! Not sure if this will work with upright red raspberries, but I'm going to experiment with one or two bushes.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
