Rose Compassion

This is my favourite rose, a climber called Compassion. It flowers very well in spite of a bit of black spot and greenfly! The only problem is that all the flowers are at the top now and I am afraid to cut it back too hard in case I do some damage. There is nothing at the bottom apart from bare stems. Any advice appreciated. It seems a shame that such a beautiful scent should be out of range!
