Yes. Yes I did.
What you'll need....
A Yelli Screamy
27.5" wheels & tires. Get something burly like Flows or Sun Ringle Chargers. They'll probably still be lighter than your 29er set up.
Some thin pedals like Crampons or your clipless doo hickies.
What you'll get...Everything you love about your Yelli with a lower center of gravity.
Your 29er fork will work just fine as long as its at least 120mm travel. No less. I mean it. If its super rocky where you ride you might wanna go 140mm. 530-550 axle to crown is money. Which, btw, opens you up to some 26" and 27.5" forks in the 150-160mm travel range.
BTW ill be selling a couple nice 29er wheelsets soon
