CMU retaining wall 5' to 9'

In a similar situation recently, we added CMU pilasters for added height, and checked the wall to span horizontally between pilasters.  The pilasters were dowelled into the existing block.  In our situation, we added footings at the pilasters, but you may not need to in your situation.
