Edges in Dustbowl
By Hebe
It's often not clearly whether you can reach a certain spot on a map or not. In this guide I tried to collect all the edges you can stand on in a very popular map cp_dustbowl.
Note: you gotta be a rare visitor to see this text. Some glitches with text position appeared

Stage 1. First point
A good spot to begin with as a red player. From the rock you can jump on enemy as a scout or soldier, whereas demoman can use this spot to control a sticky trap.
Another spot under spawn door exit. Though it's less survivable and harder to reach.
These two spots is not that high but I should mention them as well.
You can stand upon this control point sign. If other side is clear it's a good way to make an ambush.

Planks on this side of the building are open.
This is a good place to spam your enemy.
Possible ledge in a corner.
Couple of extra sports.
First point is captured! Moving onto second!
Stage 1. Second point
This position is good to ambush an enemy attacking the control point from the tunnel, but that's it.
You can stand on these planks. But doesn't seem it makes any sense.
Unlike the first point, second one is short of sophisticated edges. I could mention this bell in a red spawn room though.
Stage 2. First point
A place in a corner.
Two spots (first is upscale) to hide if red uber or crits are coming into the spawn area.
Couple of other start positions. You can stand on the lamp and the log.
Marvelous view from here.
Stage 2. Second point
Pyro welcomes us to the next control point.
A lot of rocks here are free of invisible blocks.
This spot is close to the previous, you probably knew it already.

You can stand on the sign and the log in the tunnel,
as well as on the log in the left entrance. You knew this spot on the right.
This one is easier to get,
than this rock under left exit.
And the last one with rocks on the second stage. The ledge is so smal, that I had to use a parachute to get there.
Spots I was hinted in a comment section. You can hide upon lamps,
ambush your enemies,
stand on these ledges.
We're ready to go onto next stage.
Stage 3. First point
It occurs that you can stand on these "resupply" and both "control point" signs.
Thanks for submitting this spot in a comments! You can crouch on both sides.
I'm glad this engy helps to make the catharsis to this guide. For some reason this exploit still exists and even here there is an edge!

A dangerous place.
The first spot can be used as a start position for a red player, but are there any use of the second? I guess if red crits are pushing blue back.

Stage 3. Second point
These things are open to stand on.
The idea of writing this guide came by seeing how others use elusive ledges.
That's amazing.
Another spot brought by the comments.
Higher!
Left and right.
This postition is cool for a red player.
Spots were shown as they occur from the begging to the end of the map.
However, some clear positions, as on the right picture below, were ommited.
Conclusion
The purpose of the guide was to collect all the vague edges you can stand on Dustowl. Despite it's never said how and what class can access these spots, they were well illustrated by pictures. Let me know in a comments below if I miss some.

There're might be misspells for I'm not a native speaker. Have a good day!
