I want to put vine plants on a concrete wall. This is for zone 7/8 elevation at 5100 ft. Wall faces west. Is there any that won't freeze or will all need to be cut back in the spring? Thank you

Most vines, except for ivy, and some types of forsythia, will die back and will need to be cut during dormancy. But those two can be an evergreen in your zone. You may also try creeping junipers trained upwards.
Here are a few articles that will help:
