KTM 350 Clutch - Should I be concerned?

Folks - towards the end of a recent ride, I got stuck on a never ending steep hill resulting in me having to over user the clutch. Every-time I put her into gear the bike would stall unless I gave extra revs and dropped the clutch quickly. Once I was back on a straight, less grinding trail, the clutch was fine.

Is this a sign of clutch plate wear and tear, well used oil, or just the fact that I was over using the clutch on a hill. The bike is '12 model, about 65 hours, weekend warrior standard.

Any advice...? Thx folks

I would not be too worried.
Just give it an oil change.

You probably glazed the plates, give both plates [metal and fibre] a roughing up, medium grade sand paper should do it.
