Whitney et al. (2021) challenge our conclusions about rates of deformation and amount of uplift along the Cape Range, Western Australia, particularly the elevation constraints we place on the last interglacial shoreline along the northern half of Cape Range. They selectively focus almost entirely on the northern half of Cape Range, completely omitting our extensive analysis of the southern section, which provides the bulk of our paleo−sea-level interpretations. They also raise concerns about some of the nomenclature and methodology used. We thank them for the opportunity to clarify our results on the minor section of our paper they take issue to, and address their concerns below point by point.
