Revisit following CJO's work. I found the yellow plastic cap and bored hole close to where I had tried. Walked back via Billinge Hill - I can add Ingleborough to the view.

This one is going to be controversial! Found the arrow. Followed it and removed some of the turf to find a yellow surveyor's plastic "flat-topped mushroom" sitting on the natural bed rock with its stalk inserted into a drilled hole that had been opened up at the top by chiselling. Was this install never finished or has someone removed the bolt? No sign of glue or resin so suspect the former. The plastic must have been inserted relatively recently as the install date is 1953. Almost directly in line with arrow, 1.7m away. 7cm deep. Lonesome Cowboy Burt's turf removal was only about 20 cm away to the northwest.

Yellow Hill Auxiliary Drilled round hole with smooth flat bottom. Top of hole chiselled out. Side view of mushroom found upright in hole.

GPS put the bolt near a small quarry at the top of a rise. There's a line of sandstone with what could be interpreted as a carved arrow above the quarry. I couldn't see an exposed bolt, so I tried probing east along the rocks from the arrow. I couldn't find anything but I could easily have missed it by centimetres. Fine views west from Snowdonia to Black Combe and south towards Darwen Moor. There's a new, large topograph to the west put there by the Wainwright Society amongst others which feels out of place to me.
