Help with repairing, and re-parging cinder block under stairs.

http://ift.tt/1Nu1a1A

The stair foundation is parged cinderblock. I have peeling paint, cracks in the block mortar, and parge that has turned to sand. Should I 1) scrape paint 2) fix cracks, then use a parge mix?

Or should I cover it all up with attached diamond mesh and parge over that. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
