No you pitch a tent with your stiffie...but you dont pitch your stiffie.

This implies that there are shades of dark which there are not howerver there is pitch black which would be the correct way of using that term to describe the type of black

I thought it was rotation around the side to side axis, you know, like 90 degrees to yaw...

 

In terms of climbing, well that all depends, don't ya think? Sometimes the pitch consists of 10' up from the ledge, then 10' back down, and that's it for that pitch.

pitch (n.)

"tar," O.E. pic, from L. pix (gen. picis) "pitch," from PIE base *pi- "sap, juice" (cf. Gk. pissa, Lith. pikis, O.C.S. piklu "pitch," related to L. pinus; see pine (n.)).

 

Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2001 Douglas Harper

Online Etymology Dictionary - Cite This Source

pitch (v.)

c.1205, "to thrust in, fasten, settle," probably from an unrecorded O.E. *piccean, related to the root of the verb prick. The original past tense was pight. Sense in pitch a tent (1297) is from notion of "driving in" the pegs; meaning "throw a ball" evolved c.1386 from that of "hit the mark." Noun meaning "act of throwing" is recorded from 1833. The noun meaning "act of plunging headfirst" is from 1762; sense of "slope, degree, inclination" is from 1542; musical sense is from 1597; but the connection of these is obscure. Sales pitch is attested from 1876, probably extended from meaning "stall pitched as a sales booth" (1811). Pitch-pipe is attested from 1711. Pitcher "one who pitches" is recorded from 1722, originally hay into a wagon, etc.; baseball sense first recorded 1845.
