He ascended the peak in 3 hours, taking the final moderate pitch at a near run.

I don't understand "taking the final moderate pitch at a near run".

Can somebody help me out?

The pitch is the slope of the mountain, which is (in this case) moderate at the top. The person ascending covers this stretch "at a near run," i.e., almost running.

  • You can strengthen this answer by including a definition of pitch, and explaining that the pitch refers to the angle. You could also include an example. Jun 16, 2017 at 2:07
