Ayuh,...... I've never tried it,.....

But, I'd think that running screws right in thru it just under the area your hand rides onto, directly into the wall otta do it......

Thanks for that. Seems a little course to do it that way - was wondering if there is a way to do it that's hidden from th outside, or special brackets...

Ayuh,....

Can can always countersink the screws,+ either putty over them, or use wooden cap/ plugs to hide them......

Drill and counterbore for plugs in the curved bottom section, then screw to the wall with long pan head screws. Install plugs of the same wood species, orientating the grain with the grain of the rail, sand flush ,and finish.

There you go... the answer, I concur.

Also, make sure that you use proper, strong, appropriate length wood screws.
