We develop a hidden dynamics formulation of regularisation for piecewise
smooth maps. This involves blowing up the discontinuity into an interval, but in
contrast to piecewise smooth flows every preimage of the discontinuity needs to
be blown up as well. This results in a construction similar to classic approaches
to the Denjoy counterexample.
