This evening I was looking at christmas lights and i was in a line of traffic in a neighborhood. I got forced onto a pretty steep hill which in turn made me feather thr clutch for about 4 minutes. Started to smell awful and it just felt weird during shifts. Will my clutch be ok after this incident?

The clutch should be OK from that little bit, a few sessions on a track would abuse it more than you did.
Drive the car until your clutch chatters or starts slipping.

Mine got that burnt smell last year when trying to pull up on a flat bed to haul it. Shut the car off and let it cool then winched it up on flatbed. I was worried also. But a year later clutch seems still just fine, no problems.

Clutch should be fine. She just got a little hot is all. It's no different than doing a hard launch with it or like someone else said; tracking it. Just a question; when you say you were feathering the clutch on a hill are you referring to trying to keep the car in place or are you talking about start-stop traffic? Our cars do have hill start assist to help with those situations.
