This is really simple. There are 4 good months for climbing Mount Elbrus. The busiest months will be July and August but they are also the best months. You can climb Mount Elbrus in May. The best months are going to be June, July August and September.
I personally prefer June, July and September but the weather is very in consistent and you really never know what you will be dealt.
Even in the best months you can experience arctic conditions on the summit night. There are 3 key elements you can control as you prepare for Mount Elbrus.
1). Your Training and preparation
2). Your itinerary, You need to have 3 potential summit attempts
3). quick access on the south route up the mountain
