Climbing rose for zone 5 colorado

I’m sure this topic has been covered a million times, but does anyone have recommendations for a can hardy climber that will survive Colorado’s winters? I’m zone 5, but we have tons of freeze/thaw in the spring. I would like to grow it on an arbor (or two, one for each side) but be able to keep it trimmed so it doesn't get overly wide at the base. It would be out in the open, with plenty of wind. I don’t really have much protection. The more rebloom the better. Color doesn’t matter. The ones I’m considering:

Lady in red

Colette

tangerine skies

ramblin red

above and beyond


Thoughts? I know it might be a long shot, and climbers just might not work for me, but it’d be so awesome if one could!


Thanks in advance!

Sam
