granite 24" in shower 10' high ,will it stay ?

I have just finnished installing the kerdi on the shower walls, ( first timer), and am now ready to start the 10' high walls. My granite was purchased from the local tile store, it is chinese 24" black granite. The store sold me a couple of bags of Pro-bond dry mix , a Superior company product, that they said I would need for these big 1/2" x 24" slabs. Is this what I should use, or should I just get unmodified thin set, like I got from lowes, that I used under the kerdi ?
We also want to butt the slabs without grout spacing. How will this work? We are using Schulter expansion strips in all inside and outside corrners inside the shower as well as on the floor. Iam sure the floor job ( outside the shower) will be a snap once I finnish hoisting the big slabs up 10' !! I bought a pair od suction cups, but , not sure if they will help? Much Thanks to anyone experenced with 24' granite work on walls. .................DK
