unknown white climbing rose

ValliNagyApril 30, 2013

The climbing rose pictured here was given to me as a cutting by a friend who wasn't sure what it was called. It is a thorny and extremely vigorous climber, sending out shoots more than 10 feet long every season. The flowers are very lightly fragrant, and don't last long when cut. They open a peach color and fade to a pinkish off-white, and are 1-2 inches in size. I've compared them to a bunch of other white and off-white climbers like Iceberg, White Dawn, Sombreuil, Cecile Brunner, and so on, but it doesn't seem to be quite like any of them-- less white than some, less double than others. But I realize web pix don't tell the whole story. Can any of you rose experts pin it down for me?

Not that one, which is quite different actually. Closest familiar one is 'Ghislaine de Feligonde' but it could perfectly well be another - perhaps without a cultivar name. Was the friend sure it was a named variety originating elsewhere?
