Follow the line of the obvious thin crack between Yukon Jack and Pot Doodles. The climb is mainly on the slab right of the slab with some thin moves and spaced protection. Sustained and high in the grade.

Originally thought we where on Pot Doodles but we seem to have climbed a new line: Take the finger-thick crack in the slab at the lowest point of the right hand end of the crag. Step off the snow (!) and establish yourself on the steepening slab. Climb the crack and the broken corners above in an almost straight line, past an easy section that leads to a low angled but blankish slab. Finish up this at a grassy belay. Approx. 45-50m. Probably VS 4c. A thinly protected, but overall not steep, slab route. The crack and parts of the route above were wet. Finished up Hidden Chimney, so crampon-scratched that the granite looked like marble, it doesn't get a rock grade - maybe no-one's done it on rock before. Had to climb the whole lot with a pack on because we didn't fancy crossing the snow field again to pick them up; that was just too slippy. I think this is a first ascent. I'd just met my dog's vet running along the top so I'm naming the route after him, the dog not the vet, even though he's a good vet. AndyP - Lead O/S - 09/May/08 with Will
