Well that is a real bitch right there. I hate when that happens and i am encountering a similar difficulty. Spray WD 40 around it, see if that helps, otherwise take your crank off like a 2piece.

Sometimes your crank will be reverse threaded where the sprocket bolt threads in thats why they add Loctite. soak it in WD-40 and try turning it the opposite way youre trying to loosen it and if that doesnt work just muscle it and hope you dont strip it haha

you could try taking it off like a 2 piece crank, and lightly tapping the end of the spindle without an arm. That will push the spindle out a little bit and might help crack the bolt loose too since it's not jammed up against anything

Heat it up with a lighter or blow torch. if you have an oxygen torch that would be even better. if it is locktited it will undo with ease
