Might be Virginia Creeper. That adheres with little suckers.

RE: Identify this vine

Thanks Ronnie. After reading about it this vine seems very invasive. Should I look at other choices or is this a good solution to cover a concrete wall? I like the fact that it changes with the seasons and loses its leaves. Any other ideas or is this a good choice?

RE: Identify this vine

Here is a great list of vining options:

Bignonia capreolata
Creeping fig
Passiflora
Tecoma capensis
Aristolochia

You will need to google.com each one and see if it will grow well in your area.
