How about a 3D Polyline. Just draw one segment. Snap to your specified point on the cylinder, then X&Y=0 and Z= your specified height above the cylinder. Use the Edit Tool to move the endpoint node, if necessary, or use the "Length" parameter in the Selection Info palette (since it's only one segment).
