Take 2 steps back. Problem solved without making drastic changes to class mechanics. Seriously, someone cant just leap to an area, they leap to a person. The only reason someone would stand there to begin with is if they are trying to grapple someone, or they are hoping they get leapt to, and the person then falls. No reason for sour grapes if your plan backfires.
Like I said above it wasn't me who was standing there, but a teammate, I just think the distance between the two sides and being able to leap there with someone standing there is abit over the top.
