You, actually, have several choices here! I would recommend the climbing hydrangea, myself. These seem to be the most shade tolerant of all of them, and in fact, full sun seems to bother them.

At this rate, it will not be how many hours of direct sun you will worry about. Just that it gets bright filtered light almost all day. This will fit your location perfectly, it would seem.
