Default Want Expert Advice on Backwards Hill Slide

Not sure where to put this, so moderators relocate if needed please.

I am looking for some input on how to best recover from an aborted hill climb that leaves you diagonal or sideways and sliding. I am imagining that if I had a manual that I would clutch it and try to straighten it up for a backwards roll. With an auto, lockers and lo gear, everything is solidly locked and it won't roll backwards. Should I try to stab neutral right away?

Imagine the following video with another 15+ degrees of angle and more ruts - it could be a bad scenario.

I am trying to create some good habits...just in case.
