OK, after reading it about twenty times I finally understand what you're talking about. Trust me, you'll want more than 11 ft. of vertical growth very, very soon. Hops don't do horizontal too well BTW, Home Depot, Lowes, and all of the other box stores sell bulk natural fiber twine for about the same price as the bread wrapper ties. As a bonus it's bio-degradable and you can chop it up for your compost pile in the fall.
Yah, they'll climb anything. I've "one-upped" ya though because I'm using the steel guy-wires provided by the power company to support some of my plants. Don't understand what kind of "short" response you were looking for but I hope that I could help you out.
