How to use "Overleap" in context?

When someone "overleaps" or "jumps over" a gap, they go beyond what is ordinarily considered safe. And while overleaping is a perceptive way of navigating around challenging obstacles, it can also be risky.

The key to safely leaping over gaps is to take into account the surrounding environment. How tight is the space? How deep is the gap? What is the surface below?

When leaping over a narrow gap, for example, keeping your body as close to the edge of the gap as possible will help you to land without crushing your limbs or falling into the chasm below.
