I've successfully used a crowbar with the nail slot ground out. If it's wedge-shaped enough, usually just hammering it under the hanger is enough to pop the bolt out to allow you to pry it the rest of the way. Maybe not the best method but I've used it quite a few times myself. It's easier to rig because there is a lot less grinding involved.

You should email the American Safe Climbing Association about this and they may be able to help you or someone they know in the area to get those bolts replaced with new SS bolts
