Repairing low wall around patio

I'm a pretty good DIYer, but have no experience with masonry. I've searched this site and haven't seen this covered.
There's a 50 YO 3 cinder block high wall around my patio set on a foundation that goes below the frost line. The corners have pipes that come up and form a canopy over the patio onwhich several types of vines grow.
A break in the wall developed on one corner near the steps, so it's not a corner, but an end. The break does not include foundation, but the blocks, which now rock back & forth. And this also includes the pipe in that corner. Would using the synthetic products listed for other breaks work or do I have to rebuild this altogether?

Hello, and welcome to the DIY Forums!

This is not an area of expertise for me, but I'm sure if you keep checking back for a reply, someone will be able to answer your question.

Would it be possible for you to put a link to a picture? You can upload to photobucket, (Picasa if you have a Google account) and post the link, here.
