5/16-inch by 1.5-inch compression bolt (sold as 8mm x 40mm): one of three anchors removed from atop "the Nose."  Brand new, in hard rock, this beauty had between body weight and 4,000-lbs of strength (depending upon how well it was placed).  In medium to soft rock (such as ours), this had functionally no strength.
