We study the potential of the exclusive pp -> pl(-)l(+) p process to probe excited leptons at the LHC, which is known to be one of the cleanest channels at the hadron colliders. The sensitivity of the model parameters is obtained at 95% confidence level by considering three forward detector acceptances: 0.0015 < xi < 0.5, 0.0015 < xi < 0.15, and 0.1 < xi < 0.5.
