Take your Dremel or grinder and cut a slot in the bolt so you can put a large screwdriver in it to hold it while you undo the nuts.

Yup! And, since the OP has already got a little movement on the nut, slight rotation back and forth - say 10 degrees, with plenty of penetrant. Stops the rust dust from binding in the threads.
