From the other thread:
"Olympic dedication and training."
-These days he [Brad Gobright] works as a busboy at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder, drives a 1994 Honda Civic, and counts grocery-store donuts among his diet staples. - OutsideOnline

"At another level, an obvious way to shave some seconds is for a team to decide that they are comfortable to simul-solo some sections with the rope on."
- To maximize their speed, they ditched camming devices meant to prevent falls and whatever weighty gear they could live without. They didnít pack food or water. ..what pushed Gobright and Reynolds over the speed record was their strategy in the climbís final stretch: The two men ascended nearly simultaneously, foregoing the usual practice of having one climber go on ahead of the other.- SF Gate

"I think we need a statistical analysis and a graph of the records. See if they're starting to level off to a minimum or if they're continuing a downward curve."
Done, but I don't know how to upload the graph!
It's a very steep drop to a long gradual decline.

Basically, it almost halved from nearly 18hrs to 9.5 in 10 years
Then from 9hrs 30 to 4hrs 33 in 6 years
Then it was another 10 years before another hour came off from 4.22 to 3.24
Another 10 years to get it to 2hrs 23 minutes;
And now 5 years to drop 4 minutes.
I don't have the exact dates, but it's definitely slowing down, which you'd expect.
