I have a situation in my attic where I need to drill thru some wood in a wall behind the closet as that's the only access I am aware of that runs from the attic, to the basement. There is an existing hole that was made when all the walls were down but it's full of wire. Want to drill a second one. Going to be near impossible to get to.
So from the picture you can see the fun and how things narrow and there are fun cables going horizontally across and all over and electrical conduit. Pulled away the insulation. I was going to use my Magnespot tool I've had sitting in a cabinet for years to identify where that hole currently is from below and if I need to try and drill in front of that hole with all the wires in the way or behind it as the wall gets more narrow to keep it within the confines of the studs. Studs there seem pretty close together, checking with a stud finder. Have maybe a foot or less between the two studs.
So any thoughts how to get to that corner or at least be able to drill the hole I need? Keeping in mind if at a distance won't be able to put any real pressure on the bit to get it to go thru. Was thinking of an auger bit or something and not sure how deep I'll have to drill anyway. Note I prefer even though would be the "quick" answer, to avoid cutting drywall.
---- EDIT ----
Think editing my original question is the right path. Well I have flooring running all the way up to the darn electrical conduit sticking up back there. Light in the closet under there. For reference the red area above I highlight is about of area so between that conduit and only having a small area not sure I can physically get in there. Anyway, so have more detail.
So I ran the scope up the wall again from the basement. Here's where I am and shows the studs with blue tape
Going up the wall again I get to here
Also closeup of the area as you can see a copper pipe along the side of it.
Not sure what that framing is but somehow the wires are snaking around the horizontal wood piece which not sure looks like a fire stop or not. Not used to things being about to get around a fire stop. I was about 11.5' up the wall and thought it was higher but think it's at the three horizontal pieces of tape (detects studs holding sideways) instead as can't detect any wood in the wall in that area so think it's lower down.
But I basically have to get to the top of the wall as shown additionally here which getting to the three horizontal pieces of tape below is unreachable by a flexible bit.
So any thoughts how I can access that back corner to get a hole thru the attic into the wall and probably guessing I will need to drill thru the "floor" in the wall of the second floor down to the first? Whatever is causing detection of those three separate horizontal studs not sure. Flooring? What allows these cables to get around those areas? Obviously the wires already there are making it to the basement. Ugh.
