    When you have a wall that steps up into the hill, with grid in it, each layer runs flat left to right, right?...your drain pipe follows the contour of the step-up, right? So, on a large wall with multiple layers of grid, do you cut a hole in the grid so that the pipe can go through it, or do you just put it in the seam where two pieces meet?

    Thanks for any/all answers in advance.

    You wouldn't need to use a pipe along the stepped sides, only on the toe. Since that would be on top of the leveling pad and under the first row of grid, it should not be a problem. For walls where you have a fairly long step run, the same principle would apply, you would run the pipe along that side toe and daylight it through the face above grade.
