The plants below the 1st bolt were left in their natural state because it is possible to carefully climb over them without causing harm. Please be respectful of the native fauna and flora.

A 12 at bruisebros!? Nice work. You have done the impossible. Will have to check out. May finally have a reason to return here.

asking bruise bro climbers not to mess with vegetation mid route? Now that’s bold

Unfortunately the vegetation will likely be trampled in short order because this is destined to be a first 5.12 for many. Felt on par with Expresso.
