Leudigar turns back and gets the attention of the rest of the group and indicates he wants strips of cloth from the dead monks' robes so he can tie off the cowbells as he moves through them. This would also mark the path he is taking for the others to follow...
While others are getting the cloth, he takes a few minutes to study the statues and bells and chains, looking for the best route to the ramp. Not the most direct route, but the route where he has to pass through the fewest number of cowbells.
Once the fabric is returned, his plan will be to fold some of the cloth into a "V" shape, then stick that into the bell, capturing the clapper between the fabric. Then he'll use another strip of cloth, wrapping it around the bottom of the bell and tying it at the top. This should keep the first piece of fabric inside the bell and thus silence the bell.
