Question Repair difficulty regarding double vs. single layer of asphalt shingles.

I was preparing to counter-flash my chimney today but noticed a quite large hole/tear in the head (up-slope) flashing. Looks like that will have to be corrected first but since this roof is sporting two layers of asphalt shingles I'd like to know if this will be much more involved (shingle-wise removal/replace) than the single layer repairs I have done in the past?

Have to tackle it first thing tomorrow as they are calling for moderate to heavy rain late evening so any insight would be appreciated!

It depends how brittle the shingles are. Lift a few of them. If they are flexible enough to slide new shingles underneath & nail them, it shouldn't be too bad. If they turn into corn flakes as an old boss used to say, then it will be a problem.
