Oh ok, I see so now it's no trace of ramps on the pyramids themselves. Yes that is correct they would have removed the ramps completely to allow the casing to be properly attached. But there are traces of ramps on the Plateau that the pyramid is built on, right?

So you say.... does not seem to bother the people who have studied the Great Pyramid in detail from coming up with plausible ramp designs for its construction. I like switchbacks, as well as that proposal by the Klemms' as shown in Frank Dörnenburg new book.

Well, the block size does decreases as they go up. The ones at the top, or at least what is now about 15 levels down since the rest are missing, are really not that big. In fact many of them look like irregular masonry fill of varying sizes. Did not need much of a ramp or any other means to get them up there.... every look into how people quarry Carrara marble and then move the large blocks from the quarry in past ages, often quite perilous.
