As far as I can tell you made two critical errors. You started much too late, and, Im guessing, you started well slept. Serves you right.

But seriously; even when crippling dehydrated on Ozi with Huw, I don't think we took over 2, perhaps 2.5 Hours on a pitch. Im trying to do the maths in my head, which means its probably wrong. I know we started wasting alot more time at belays, and then took a nap. Miguel75, self described 'big-wall theorist' when peer-pressured on to the horrifically dirty bottom pitches of LG was faster than that (which just goes to show that a bit of bullying can be a force for good in this world).

Part of me fundamentally doesn't understand why it is often so damn slow. Also, I don't want to ever have to poop on a wall, ok.

post edit: I hope Im not berating or belittling anyone, Im not trying to. If you like climbing slow, swell. But It's so far from my experience of what aid climbing is like, and how long it takes that it seems really odd.
