    Wish I could see more of the plant/vine to narrow it down for you. For now I could only suggest you check out the Kasura tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum), and climbing species in the Hyrangea genus the Hydrangea anomala and its subsp. If this is Katsura and the spindly growth perhaps it is reaching toward for light since it is under other two plants (?). If it is climbing Hydrangea, check for rootlets along the stems/branches. Maybe you can make new post with more photos, e.g.the whole plant & close up of the branches. I’m leaning toward Katsura, but with out more information it is only a speculation. Link below is for Katsura. Best wishes! http://dendro.cnre.vt.edu/dendrology/syllabus/factsheet.cfm?ID=276
