Looks like you put the lock ring back on after removing the freewheel in this shot. I would think if you left it off, you'd have plenty of room for a cone wrench.

Edit -- looks like the one pictured would have room for a cone wrench with the lock ring out of the way. But I just removed the freewheel from one of my destructo-model hubs, and indeed, even without the lock ring, the flats of the cone are out of reach.
