That's a shame Jim. I'd say you'd be wasting your time unfortunately. Only new growth will attach so the rest would have to be fixed in place very securely with something like vine eyes and wire, and with the weight of it, I wouldn't be confident of any success. Assuming it's all still rooted at the base, you could cut it back to a couple of feet and fix that in place securely, then put a wire,or netting, at the top of that (close to the wall) for new growth to cling onto. Once that establishes, it would carry on doing it's thing by itself. It just needs to be guided onto the wall initially. You may need to tie a few strands in from time to time to keep them heading the right way.
