Well, low speed "crawling" over rough and uneven terrain can be a lot more fatiguing if you're constantly having to feather clutch in and out and in and out....over and over again.
If you can chug along at idle and give a little juice smoothly now and then when needed to keep up momentum with out clutching, it's a lot less work on the left hand.
You might also experience these conditions crawling along in stop and go traffic, clutch in, clutch out, over and over again, it get's old real quick!
