Menkaure's entrance level (floor) is built at the exact same level as G1's entrance floor, it also has the same slope, moreover it's length matches G1's descending length from entrance to floor of the ascending. There are many similarities between the G1 and G3, I posted most of them over the years, this has led me to hypothesize the idea both were built during Khufu's reign, atop older structures, that Menkaure finished the work as well build the pyramid temple and the valley temple.

The idea of incorporating older structures fits the application of the triangles perfectly by transfer of weight, remember the passages are offset from the pyramid center, I would expect the western triangle to be much larger (length wise) than the others. Of course we have no idea if the natural terrain below the pyramid extends higher and to the west, something akin to the sphinx's member III level.

Best,
