Make it one of those "good news / bad news" things...
Ok, Bad news 1st:
you need to replace the pipe

Good news:
you'll have a new pipe

Replace the trap

Hopefully you can get to it from an access Panel or from a Ceiling below that can be easily patched. This is the Easiest and most economical. Renting a Snake may work but could put a hole in the pipe... I have also seen one Contractor who did not want to pay us to repair the problem he caused have one of his helpers sit there for a few hours with a log bar and slowly chip it all out. after he broke up all he could see we ran a camera for him and luckily it was all clear... good Luck
