Kitchen sink. Main pipe to wall is clogged. How to clear?




I took apart the smaller pipes, and I used a boroscope to see the clog was in the large pipe exit coming from the wall. It is clogged and I see a small pool of water.

I tried to jam a coat hanger and other stuff to no avail.

What sort of tool do I need to clear it?
Snake? Or some sort of drill attachment?

Is there a special technique?

Yea, it seems to have done the trick. I only figured out how to use the electric snake tool at the very end. When pulling in and out, you need to secure the drill chuck so the cable is locked. I assembled it and ran water for a while, and it's clear.
