How To Mount A Camera On Rough Block?

I went to a customer site yesterday and the entire side of the building where they need coverage is this fancy decorative block. Its textured, with peaks and valleys and not a single smooth surface. It's a higher end development, so it has to look good, and unfortunately I don't have the ability to mount to any other surface. I plan on using dome cameras, not ruling out the use of wall brackets. The other problem I have is that I have to run my wire on the exterior, as this is a condo association and they have finished walls and ceilings on the oppoiste side, with no chance of getting wire through. I have never had to mount to this type of surface before, so if any one has any suggestions or experience with this decorative block I would greatly appreciate it.
