building new fence on top of new retaining wall
pixelTreat

I'm currently having a 30" retaining wall built. 8" concrete block with 12" x 12" footing.

On top of this I'm having built a 6ft high, 45ft long fence. (Two 22.5ft sides meeting to the corner.)

My question is what is the best way to secure this with 4x4 posts? I'm considering two options right now, Simpson Strong-Tie cb44 anchors or the core pipe method described here:

Though this describes a 2ft fence.

For how weather may impact, I live in Los Angeles.
