Description

Doppelganger is located on the western arĂȘte of "Hole in the Wall" Rock. The climbing starts out by climbing past a couple bolts and moving up a stemming trough which culminates on a ledge. A steeper section is encountered before clipping the rings at the rim of the formation. A good warm up. Other lines have been top roped here. On the back side of the arch is a 4th class access to the top of Hole in the Wall which is a great spot for a picnic or to take in the views. There are several anchors on the summit set well back from the cliff edge (Bring very long slings.)

Location

This climb is located about 100 feet west of the base of Hailstone ArĂȘte at the foot of the western side of Hole in the Wall Rock.

Protection

7 bolts to anchor/lower off rings

Super Fun. Great warmup before you hit up Hailstone routes.
solid 5.8/5.9 climb. Thanks for putting up a killer moderate on The Hole In the wall.
Awesome rock up high on the mountain. Worth the stomp up there. Jan 26, 2016
