New Dawn for colder zone

I have been thinking of growing this rose for a while now. However, after all the pictures and youtube videos, I am scared I see a huge beautiful monster eating up people houses and arbours etc. There is a youtube video how one fellow's New Dawn is growing or rather taking over his three storey house. It is gorgeous but scary. Sorry I don't want to sound like a newbie, but it isn't everyday that I see huge rose shrubs and climbers in my zone. My question therefore is, how tall does it get in my zone? I am in zone 5 in American terms or zone 6 according to Canadian terms.

The area I am thinking of is on my backyard fence. I was hoping to grow climbers for some privacy with unwanted view of my neighbours yard. I already have climbing eden, golden showers, swan lake, crimson cascade, Teasing Georgia, Evelyn, Othello, Graham Thomas planted, kind of close together. I am hesitant because I don't want a climber that is going to take over all of their space.
