Easiest way from 2x10 (0.05“ pitch) header to 0.1”

As per title, I have a debug header with a 2x10 0.05" setup on a board I'm working with. This was chosen because of the space constraints. I'm looking for the cleanest way to go from this header to a standard 0.1" pitch header that I can connect my logic analyzer and other debugging equipment to.

For the 2x5 I'm using this Adafruit breakout board that works really well, but couldn't find something similar for 2x10.

Lengths of stripped 22 gauge wire inserted into the 2x10 socket and then fed into holes of a blank protoboard with the 2x5's mounted. Solder. Good for in-a-pinch. Not for the ham-fisted who would easily bend the wires. I did this recently when I wanted to mount a 4-digit 7-seg display above a microcontroller on a breadboard instead of taking up horizontal real estate.

EDIT: Or whatever gauge wire fits your socket.
