With your entrymodifiers, the empty entry that you're using to break
your arrow still has its emptyness centered around the *baseline*
(because that's the kind of empty boxes TeX produces from \hbox{}).
Therefore it ends up below the axis where the horizontal arrow passes
through.

It ought to help to bypass the \entrymodifiers for that cell by doing
something like

\ar@{-}[rr] & *+{} & \\
