If you are not comfortable with climbing and are unable to safely make the climb, do not attempt this cache or series. If you do not have a very well trained monkey who can safely retrieve this cache, you may want to find a good Sherpa who might be able to assist you.
Mount Elbrus - is a dormant volcano located in the western Caucasus mountain range, in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay–Cherkessia, the Russian Federation, near the border with Georgia. Mt. Elbrus's peak is the highest in the Caucasus, in Russia.
Elbrus has two summits, both of which are dominant volcanic domes. Mt. Elbrus (west summit) stands at 18,510 ft; the east summit is slightly lower at 18,442 ft. The lower of the two summits was first ascended on 10 July 1829 (Julian calendar) by Khillar Khachirov, a Karachay guide for an Imperial Russian army scientific expedition led by General Emmanuel, and the higher (by about 40 m—130 ft) in 1874 by an English expedition led by F. Crauford Grove and including Frederick Gardner, Horace Walker, and the Swiss guide Peter Knubel of St. Niklaus in the canton Valais.
While there are differing authorities on how the Caucasus is distributed between Europe and Asia, many sources agree that Elbrus is also the highest mountain in all of Europe.
