To climb "Twinkie", go up the middle of the prominent large block in this photo. The 6-inch horizontal crack is about 10 feet up. <br /> <br />It's hard to distinguish, but attached to the large central block is a smaller rectangular block, protruding from the left side. It sticks out about a foot. It's so far left that I think it must be off route, but I used it to get up the block and get to the top.

Twinkie 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  MA : Hammond Pond : Snacktime Crag
I believe the crux is getting off the ground. The block where you start is very slightly overhanging and is weirdly sheared and smooth, although covered in small features. I found I couldn't get up it - no good footholds and precious few handholds (crimps). I wound up going further left and climbing up a 5 foot, rectangular block that was sticking out of the main block and going straight up from there.I find it hard to believe this is really a 5.6, which is the grade given in Boston Rocks...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
