This is another one of those "Solved it the really hard, unintended way because you're too stupid to figure out the easy way" challenges...

Well goldenlion, being the architect in question I can safely tell you that a guy named Stefan and I had a lot of fun designing this room. I originally designed this room with the intended solution being hiding in the tar.

Stefan tests the room and says, "you know I can beat it w/o hiding in the tar". So little ol' me adds more monsters. Back to Stefan. Stefan can still beat it w/o hiding. What is an architect to do but add more monsters. Of course Stefan defeats it yet again. So finally I ask Stefan to make it so one has to use the "hide in the tar" trick. Sure enough Stefan edits the room and says that by taking out one monster it could still be solved "his way". So, I made the decision to use that version just in case anyone might manage to find Stefan's solution.

I'm glad you did :D

Wow, good stuff. Good to know I found an "intended" unintended solution. I probably took a lot longer than Stefan did to come up with that solution though, I'm thinking...

Larry, in case you haven't heard yet, this hold is fantastic. I'm really wondering how you can design so many rooms that keep giving me a feeling of "curses, I'm one move short. AGAIN."

Onward to Floor 6!
