Shite. A bit of a worry. Can you confirm they type of bolt ... 10mm non-stainless steel dynabolts?

Raises a couple of questions;

-What are the chances the bolt broke because it was origianlly overtightened (not just because of rust weakening it)

- Do these bolts rust quicker in sandstone than granite.

-Are similar bolts at Tarana and in the ACT really that bad.
