20m. Burning Ambition is definitely a contrived eliminate. Climb as for House Burning Down until the rail above the cave. Stand up on the rail on its left hand side, using a small crimpy side pull. Clip the eco bolt out right, then move out left on tiny crimps and smeary feet (avoiding the temping arete) until you reach a pocket: from this powerful moves lead up to the jug. Move back right on better holds, clip the next bolt and head up the groove of House Burning Down, avoiding the heel hook and arete out right. An attentive belayer is needed as a fall after the eco bolt will result in quite a swing.

Tried but seemed pretty eliminate.

Eliminate. What is more frustrating is the lack of clarity about what's in and what's out. As far as I can tell, the 15cm good horizontal hold the left end of which is 30cm up from the eco bolt on the crux is out as you're meant to stick to being 1 metre left of the ecobolt. But it would be very contrived to ignore that hold for your feet as you enter the finishing groove.
