After giving Polyphemus extremely powerful wine, he falls asleep. While he's asleep, Odysseus and his men carve down a large piece of wood and create a spear from it. While he's sleeping, they blind him with it. After Polyphemus gets up and opens the cave door (rolls the large stone out of the way), Odysseus and his men hang under the bellies of the sheep and escape that way, undetected.
