well....yes..... but it looks more like an 'lazy S', a 'S' laying on it's side.
never tried an upside 'U', but that may work also.
this late in the growing season, don't know if I'd worry about reaching the top end. I had to double-down late-May and early-July, and although I'm topped out, hops are ripening and new growth won't produce much more.
