Spidey's ability to leap from a standing position is often overlooked. It was demonstrated right at the start of Spidey's career, in Amazing Fantasy #15. Immediately after his Spider-Sense warned him of an approaching vehicle, Peter leaped up onto the side of a building.
Described in the early Amazing Spider-Man (Vol.1) Annual #1 as "able to leap up to three stories high (in the air)", that figure has since been revised and is more commonly quoted as "50 feet".
Webbing is very handy. But sometimes a Spider-Leap is just what you need to get you out of (or into) danger!
