Folks, cladking is correct. The spiral doesn't work. Below is a model done in Sketchup. I measured the distance of the five ramps per side. When totaled it reached approx. 7,000 feet long. That is 1.3 miles long. Only 390 teams of men can fit on the Pyramid. 6 men + stone = 20 feet minimum. Do the math.
You are asking, 6 men to move 2.5 tons, 20 feet every 2 minutes up hill, traveling 1.3 miles.
If you would like my Sketchup file, please let me know.
