Stuborn Clog in Bathroom Sink

I've got a clog I can't seem to break. I've taken the drain apart and used a snake for at least 15 feet. I can run water for a little while but it fills up. It is the only drain in the house slow (it's on the second floor). It completely stops the flow, and then in day or 2 it's gone again.

Keep on trying, it maybe longer then 15' to unclog it, if need be, call a drain cleaning company.

When you had the drain apart, did you just happen to look down from the lav into the pop-up assembly or strainer?

Yes, it's totally clear from the sink to the wall. Is there any way it could be a venting problem? I also have gurgling in the bathtub in another bathroom when the toilet is flushed.
