Forgot to share this write up, may be of interest while the high peaks finally get some snow. Climbed it on Halloween hence the costumes....

Great little climb! I remember a similar climb down valley where I got attacked by ants while belaying in a tree! Everyone thinks of Yosemite Valley as big granite walls - well there is plenty of brush too! This is not the only climb that one has to bushwhack to get to. Thanks for the report. Brings back memories.

Yeah I think Lower Cathedral Spire is notorious for an ant infested tree, hope to get on top of that one soon!
