Squirt it with PB blaster and let soak for 30 min or so. Then insert your hex socket into the bolt and pound the end of it with a big hammer a few times. Then turn, then hit it with a hammer again, and turn and so forth. Should break loose. If you have access to an impact wrench, set it to the low setting and try zapping it a few times with that.

Regardless of the method, the PB blaster soak makes all the difference!
