Climbing red rose, any guesses?

I don't think its Dr huey, as it seems more double, and does have scattered later bloom ( its in a rental property next door and none of the past nine years worth of inhabitants seem to be garden people). I thought it had actually died last year, when winds or neglect seemed to have pretty much collapsed it, but its come back ! theres even new growth on its poor sunburnt canes,

and a bit has sneaked through to our side of the fence

No smell I can pick up on- it gets a bit of BS, but no mildew... I had thought it might be "blackboy" just because thats always the popular climbing red rose choice here, but it doesnt quite look like the pics on HMF.

Any ideas? I have been considering trying to take a cutting...
