    So far both gnimmeL kraD and atheistium Guides are wrong and that video dosent show you what to do before the ladder....

    Load up Chapter 19 NOT 20....
    Go down the ladder which is front of you and drop down on to a big cog which is pushing up box's from below it, next what you have to do is push one of the box's towards the cog so that you can make the jump up onto the block that is going up and down to your left, the box's are moving too fast so this way it will slow it down so you can have time to climb on top of it and make the jump....
    What you have to do is just grap onto it but dont climb up onto it intill its on its way back down then run to your left and make the jump to the ladder, then you can ever follow on from where that Youtube video show you lol, or just go up the ladder and run to the right and your see the white blob under the cog and BANG you have it, just dont get crushed by the cog :P....

    for ppl who want a Video, check out Xzeno vid's below aswell so credit to him for making them so if you give me a thumbs up give him one too for hes time for making them....

    ch. 18
    get on the conveyor belt that has the cog dropping boxes onto it
    push one of the boxes right to slow the box down (**i preferred slowing the box down and keeping it in the center of the belt until the crusher started to move down, then let go so the box moved on the belt at the normal speed to get it closer to the far left of the conveyor belt**)
    then as the crusher on the left is moving downwards, quickly jump on the box and jump left to grab onto the edge of the crusher (**dont get on top of the crusher yet**)
    hang there and wait until it goes up, then as it begins to come back down, climb up and run across it to the left
    as you come to the end, wait until it starts to move upwards again, and time your jump just before you get crushed to grab onto the ladder to the left
    climb up the ladder and run right
    walk under the cog, making sure not to get crushed – and get achievement Backtracking
