Cable Pulling Knot Rolling Bend v2 - YouTube

Starting with one cable at a time put them together to make a nice long smoothly tapered mess covered ina layer of tape so there are no sharp bumps to catch inside the wall as you pull. One person feeds and one applies steady pulling pressure. A little release and tug should get you past any random obstruction. If you have cross-bracing in the wall and you're stuck at one where a hole was drilled that's too small, well, that camera will come in handy.
I think that's what me and my buddy will try to do in a couple of weeks if he comes over.

It mightíve gotten stuck because you donít have any art hanging up on the walls.
I looked, can't see anything other than the 2x4 that's attached to the wall and the insulation behind the drywall.
