who am i growing?

This rose came up, and I don't remember planting it. It's light pink, blooms are about 2" across. It came out of the ground almost looking like a thick stalk of asparagus! There are no thorns on it, and it's just started growing leaves off the sides of it.
I usually buy antiques or austins, but it's anyone's guess who this is. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Is this near the end of the flowers bloom? I've got a Everblooming Cl. Cecile Brunner that looks a lot like that when the flowers are near the end, but when they open they are a darker pink and more hybrid tea shaped.

No, the blooms are bigger than Ceciel Brunner. I have 3 Cecile's around the yard, and it doesn't look like a polyantha. The blooms are about 2 1/2 inches across, and pretty flat. Thank you though Vissara.

"Flat" blooms.... sounds like Sombreuil (climber) to me.

Flowernay, it does resemble Sombreuil, but the blooms are pink, light pink, but in no way white. Also, the blooms are smaller. Such a mystery to me!

I don't know what rose it is, but I love that obeslisk/tripod piece it's growing on. Can you tell me how tall it is and where you bought it from? I need to get one of these.

Well "Irish rose grower", I found it at Target at the end of the season.... it's about 4 1/2 ft tall.
