I've had multiple times my teleport entrances sapped when I built them on BLU's final spawn point, but when I play spy, there's no obvious way to get there, so I have to resort to the revolvers. While it's still effective, it's just not the same thing.

How do you reach that ledge as a spy?

It's a fairly long, but mostly hidden process requiring a crouch jump.

enter image description here

The first two jumps are fairly obvious. The ledge 3 is a bit less obvious; it looks like decoration, but it's actually a platform you can land on. It's even less obvious that this ledge actually expands in the area marked 4. Once you are against the 'protection', check the leaderboard for respawn vaves, and crouch jump (tap jump and crouch at the same time). Sap to your heart's desire.

Here's a video demonstration, too.

There used to be an exploitable oversight right here, as this particular spawn door was not protected and enemies could go through while it was open (but not open it themselves). This was fixed in the July 7, 2011 Patch.

@BlaXpirit It's encouraged to post a question you yourself researched and then answer it yourself if there's not already a similar question out there. It spreads knowledge to people who may not have already known this, without them having to ask the question themselves. – Mr Smooth Sep 4 '11 at 11:11

@BlaXpirit Well badp obviously needed help with it. So I'm assuming that somewhere out there, at least one person will read this and benefit from it. It's not like badp could be the only person to have wondered how to get up there. – Mr Smooth Sep 4 '11 at 11:17

@Blaxpirit 10 minutes ain't "immediate". It's the time I needed to write the answer, and take the video I just finished uploading. I believe this is "hidden" enough to warrant a question. – badp Sep 4 '11 at 11:49

For what it is worth, I just benefitted from this. – asmodai Sep 5 '11 at 14:52

@asmodai Somehow the engineer in me isn't too happy about that :D – badp Sep 5 '11 at 15:55
