Swapped WTP Royal cranks for my cranks a while ago and i swapped because the royals were better but i realised when i put them on my bike that both bolts were rounded, 1 also was ceased and unable to get off. 1 of the bolts wasnt that badly rounded at first so i put the cranks on but i had it just about tight enough so my cranks wouldnt have play but loose enough so i could get it off again without rounding the bolts and i had the cranks off many times. But i havnt had the cranks off in ages so the last time i tried to take it off it has fully rounded it off and its extremely tight. What can i do to get this bolt out???

take a slightly larger key (probably standard) and tap it in with a hammer..if it has some wiggle room have a friend tap the end with a hammer repeatedly while you are pulling it counter clockwise (loosening)

Is the bolt hollow? Maybe try an "easy out"

Look into buying an E-Z out. They should sell those at most hardware stores.
