Why does it matter? There's a show with dragons and warging and faceless men and we're critiquing the height of an assassins jump?
Because Bran and the NK were surrounded by the White Walkers.
She's a trained lethal silent assassin. That's what she does for a living.
They showed one of the NK's minions and his hair moved...that was Arya sneaking/running past. They established she can move quickly and quietly in the scene in the library when she was dodging all the wights. I thought it was pretty clear and evident that she was able to get past the NK's minions and such via stealth.
