I think the biggest problem is that the cutoff times at Barr Camp and A-Frame are really for a 6 hour Ascent time. Some of us could have made it to the top in 6.5 hours if we could go at our own pace and reach Barr Camp at 3:10 and A-Frame at 4:20... but instead, we have to try to reach Barr Camp under 3 hours, which means going out too hard on the early part of the course and then having trouble later. Those cutoffs were changed somewhere around 2009 and since then, there have been fewer people who finish between 6 and 6.5 hours at the top (especially those of us who live and train at altitude and could complete the upper 3 miles in a reasonable time).
