  • Based in the Czech/German border area, the birthplace of climbing, we follow the local traditional approach to climbing with its bold philosophy
  • We believe in writing from positive point of view
  • We share the values of Montana printed magazine (est. 1966), but we are unique standalone platform and not it’s digital copy

    1. We believe fellow climbers. “Did you climb your first 8A and do not have a video? Congratulations!”
    2. In traditional sandstone areas we do not use chalk and we climb only dry rocks
    3. We believe in environmental responsibility and only engage in clean climbing to preserve crags for future generations
    4. We respect other climbers at a crag. For example, we do not step on their rope

  • We think that less is sometimes more. We produce real content, not just more clickbait articles
  • As you might have noticed, we were not born English-speaking… in case you notice some language-related mistakes, please don’t hesitate to contact us on info@emontana.cz – we are grateful for any feedback that enables us to grow!

Note: As you already know, our goal is to publish original content only. One of our articles took us as long as three years to complete. We are slow, and we are proud of it. Taking pictures, shooting videos, writing and editing texts, cost us a lot of time and effort. “Why does it take so long? – We just want to offer original reading experience, which is hard to find these days.”

“The others share, post or recycle. We create.”


  • We bring you a fresh, big, in-depth article each March, April, May, June, September, October and November. These articles are called „Big Ones“
  • Time to time, we publish a short story in „Quickdraws“
  • If you can speak Czech, you will find more articles in the Czech version

Standa Mitáč

Editor in chief

“Climbing is not about the grades and life is not about the money.” He loves to write about inspiring people. Addicted to situations when he does not care about date and time – in the mountains or home Elbe Sandstones. Not being treated.

Jakub Freiwald


Professional video editor, cameraman and occasional photographer. He was shooting in China, Argentina, Indonesia or India. His next destination is New Zealand. Motto: „When there is a will, there’s a way.“

Eva Janatová


Teacher. Graphic designer. The kind of person, whose eyes spark with joy whenever she has at least a chance to talk and write about mountains and crags, when she’s not near them. She believes in austerity, good tea, and does not enjoy discussing silly things.

Alešák Procházka


Loves the pulse of metropolis. Amazed by technical progress… Watches the latest fashion. Never misses any cultural event or social intercourse. Reads newspaper daily, follows financial market. (smiling)

Simča Ulmonová


Climber and occasional author. Her mood gets better with climbed meters, when she throws away stereotypes of normal days and runs away from reality. “Climbing is colorful and has many different aspects,” she says.

Tereza Ševečková


Cannot stay in one place and always has her head in the clouds. That’s why she loves writing about climbing and traveling. When she’s not in the vertical world, she’s at least talking to some interesting people or playing guitar – music makes world a better place.

Tomáš Roztočil


All the good tracks lead uphill – he takes them to find adventure, solitude, and himself. He feels most alive moving up there; backpack laden, on a bike, or scaling rocks. In lowlands, he usually tangles into frenzied dialogues with friends.

Michal Katuščák


The web magician. (Editor’s note: When we first took him climbing outdoors, we hadn’t told him he was about to climb one of the tallest rock spires in Saxony – Michal is a guy who’s not afraid of bold challenges and intense experience!)
