The telephone pole may be an electrical utility pole, so be sure that what you are planting will not cause a problem or a hazard by growing up into the conductors. Or that after your planting time and investment, the utility company removes the plants and charges you for the obstruction.
Instead of ivy on the pole itself, consider planting a tall columnar form tree on your property, in a position that will block the pole from your view.
