I think history has shown that groups of two are quite prone to clusterf*cks on long multis such a BBB. In contrast if you have competent people then groups of 3 can be a perfectly safe, fast and fun way of doing a climb.

I generally find moving as a group of 3 only slightly slower than moving as a two. Belay change overs can be fast. There is only a little extra time for seconding if you belay them simultaneously. Hanging belays can make things a little more challenging and time consuming though.

(The first and only time I've climbed BBB it was in a group of 3.)
