I'd discourage any that grab other bines, but otherwise just let them hang.

I also noticed this week that my first year Willamette now has 4 side shoots and it looks like there are more coming, some are shooting out where the main bine is a foot above the ground! Since they are first year, I planned on letting anything grow just to help the root structure. The more green above ground, the more roots below ground...

My willamette has been my best plant. I got a fair harvest the first year, and this year it has more growth on it than the two second year cascade plants combined. I think it is trying to eat my shop (where it's trellis runs).
