Been there, done that (several times).
Use a long enough threaded bolt (a QR will do but I recommend something that absolutley won't slip),
locked down the splined removal tool onto the fixed cup. Use a longish cresent (know which way the
jaws should be right? There is the stationary jaw and an adjustable jaw.) or a box wrench, something
in the order of ~14", use a > 16oz hammer and tap sharply at the end of wrench to loosen. I assume
your stuck BB is ITL so it must be loosen counter-clockwise! It will work. If you are a pro or a
perfectionist, buy a TACX tool ($20 at Excel) that does the same thing.
