[RPG] Can the Dimensional Slide arcanist exploit be used to escape a grapple


The Dimensional Slide arcanist exploit allows for an special kind of short range individual teleport. Being a Supernatural ability, I understand you do not need to roll for Concentration as a Spell-like would require.

I am more concerned about the restrictions to movement that grapple pose.

you cannot move while grappled.

...Grappled creatures cannot move and take a –4 penalty to Dexterity...

Dimensional Slide (Su):

The arcanist can expend 1 point from her arcane reservoir to create a dimensional crack that she can step through to reach another location. This ability is used as part of a move action or withdraw action, allowing her to move up to 10 feet per arcanist level to any location she can see. This counts as 5 feet of movement...
