Pedestal sink drain replacement?

I need to replace the faucet and drain on a pedestal sink in which the plumbing runs down through the pedestal. While I was easily able to remove the faucet with a standard basin wrench, I can't remove the sink drain because there's not enough space to get the basin wrench claws around the large drain nut. I also tried an adjustable wrench and I'm having the same problem. I also tried a TightSpot wrench and it was too large for the nut.

Is there a special pedestal sink tool that'll let me remove the drain nut without having to rip the whole darn sink out of the wall? I'm thinking a basin wrench with smaller pinchers might work, but I've never seen one like that.

Pedestal sink drain replacement?

Perhaps some Channel Locks?
I'm guessing bowl has to come off the wall but only a guess.
