use something on the end of the wrench to extend your grip on it

Id be super surprised if there was, ive never heard of reverse threading on a sprocket bolt. It should be the old righty tighty lefty loosy.

had that issue before, and here is what i did to get it off:

allen head style for 3/8" drive socket wrench
small dead-blow hammer (or use any small type of mallet)

just hit the handle of the socket wrench handle about 5 times at a medium force and it loosened up.

yeah, usually the tech will have a breaker bar or something to really get some torque behind it. or if you know someone who has a big tool set that has everything under the sun in the drawers, maybe see if they can hook you up before you spend money for a bike shop mechanic to do small work for you.
