What does this sentence mean?

Now, in his stupor, Bloat has been inching through the opening, head, arms, and torso, until all that’s keeping him up there is an empty champagne split in his hip pocket, that’s got hooked somehow.

In here,what does this one 'until all that’s keeping him up'  means?

is it saying while he was inching his head,arms and torso, there  was an empty champagne?

    You need to know what a champagne split is - it is a quarter bottle which holds about two glasses full. Bloat is wedged in the opening by the bottle in his pocket. This is all that is keeping him from falling through.

    the little bottle is caught in the gap and it won't let him through.  It is the only thing that won't let him through.  He is basically hooked in place by that bottle.

    It means the empty champagne split is keeping him up there. How it is doing that, or what "up there" is referring to, is impossible to know without knowing the context.
