Bennedictus Direct: Bones at the crux of the first pitch; from here, the route continues [climber's] left on an unprotected 5.8 face

Bennedictus Direct: Bones runs it out on the thin 5.9 traverse on the 4th pitch

 

Bennedictus Direct: At the end of the traverse on the 4th pitch, a couple of really hard moves (5.11c) take Bones to overlap. This pitch is a variation to the original route that avoids the 5.11d A3 section.

 

Bennedictus Direct: Jen and Brian get organized to film climbing on the third pitch of Bennedictus

 

Bennedictus Direct: Jen jugs the first pitch of Bennedictus to set up for filming the higher pitches

Panning back, you can see the bolt is in a piece of talus, having fallen from somewhere on Cannon
