How do you tell the difference between a rambler and a climber?

Basically the difference when looking at the two of them is that ramblers put out many long,thin, flexible, whip-like canes that can be bent, where as climbers canes are shorter, thicker and brittle and will snap easily when bent too much.Ramblers when happy can grow to 30 feet and bloom once with a mass of blooms. Climbers bloom continually but have less flowers (although more like hybrid tea shapes) and are usually around 15 feet.
