I'm pretty sure it's a wild cucumber. Not sure of the actual name, but we get them here all the time! Serious weed. Get rid of it!

OR, it's a member of the nightshade family, and that is serious poison.

Either way, it's not good. It's choking your rose. Not edible!

Say good-bye!

I believe that might be Araujia sericifera, and it is considered a noxious weed in California.

Here is a link that might be useful: Calflora: Araujia sericifera
