if you can take re-bar and put it through the holes so that more than one layer of blocks are connected to the other, then pound the re-bar into the ground with a small steel sledge also use a construction adhesive approved for concrete, such as loctite premium.
however if you do not have a license to do this dont do it even if the money is tempting

That wall had already failed once. I believe your looking at a repair that failed as well. And a miserable repair at that. The vertical line in the wall is indicative of that. So are the guardrail and posts above the wall in that area. No way an engineer or inspector would have ever signed off on that. Someone didnt want to pay to have a proper repair and I believe they got someone in there to do a repair under the radar. BTW, where is the other section of quardrail? Was is hit? Plow maybe, snow? The wall needs to be torn down, dug out and redone. At the least an engineer will tell you a larger section needs to be taken down, and you wouldnt build it back into a straight end. Youll build it back two over one. Only 2b clean could be used as backfill on a repair like that because theres no way to get proper compaction against a wall repair like this. So your looking at an engineer to design the repair and a soils tech engineer to test and make sure and verify your getting proper compaction and installing the grid properly. Anyone that says you can just go in there and rebuild it is not correct, and not concerned with your well being or the safety of others. You have to have engineers involved. If for nothing else but to protect you and your family. A township wont approve permits for a wall like this without stamped plans. No engineer will allow a vertical joint in the wall and no engineer would allow post and guardrail construction like that. None that I know of. To add to it, the wall was built in wet low lands. Near rail tracks like that where drainage is poor. See the plant types? any way that joint is where someone married the rebuilt section (the wall to the right of the line) with the old section ( the wall on the left side of the line). Thats just my observation
