Bo Lindbergh provides times for the three routes out of the pyramid in a Story forum post. He writes:

One (non-recorded) rough test later:
Your route: a little under 5 minutes.
My route: just under 3 minutes.
Jeoku's route: just over 4 minutes.

The Labyrinth is the largest issue, of course;
the random number gods can really bog you down there.

Thanks to Jeoku for sending in a final version of his annotated map/poster of the route he took through Pathways Into Darkness for his YouTube channel.

In a Story forum post Bo Lindbergh writes to say that there is faster way out of the pyramid after you grab all the gold on Beware of Low-Flying Nightmares. He writes:

The Page™ suggests this route up from the gold room:
  1. most of Beware of Low-Flying Nightmares
  2. all of A Plague of Demons
  3. all of Feel the Power
  4. Ground Floor

Wouldn't the other way always be faster? a small part of Beware of Low-Flying Nightmares

  1. the north edge of The Labyrinth
  2. a tiny bit of Happy Happy, Carnage Carnage
  3. all of We Can See In The Dark... Can You?
  4. a small part of Welcome, Tasty Primate
  5. a tiny bit of Wrong Way!
  6. Ground Floor
We Can See is a lot less unpleasant when you have IR goggles...

Jeoku in his Pathways Into Darkness playthrough shows a third escape route out of the pyramid.

So which route is faster?
