The German Wikipedia states that Elbrus comes from a Georgian word meaning "conic peak".Here it is written "twin peaks". Which is right? Or both are points of view? R.Del Re01 Nov 2005
I am moving the last paragraph "The Caucasus Mountains are the result...." becuase it would fit better in the article for the Caucasus_Mountains, that is lacking in geological information.ChristopherM 18 Nov 2005locals dont call the mountain mt elbrus, but Mingi Tav which translated from karachay malkar to english means thousand mountains since its so large.
All russian sources say, that East peak was ascended by Khilar Hachirov, a member of russian military expedition in 1829.
This is mount Elbus. Mount Elbus is one of the biggest mountains in Europe. Mount Elbrus is also the highest point in the Caucasus mountains, a range of almost 1,000 miles long. The mountain resides in Russian republics of Karachay-Cherkess and Kabardin-Balkar.Mt. Elbrus height is just up Mt.

Load of un supported claimes in etymology section, trying to find Iranian root for anything at all. Self gratification with no limits. Mehrdad17:18, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
It says in the article that, "...many sources agree that Elbrus is also the highest mountain in all of Europe" but if that is true, then it is also true that many sources agree that Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in "all of" Europe. Indeed, that is what I understood for most of my life (until reading this article in fact). I have no doubt that the further east one travels in Europe, the further east the locals will believe the eastern border of Europe to be, but it is difficult to believe that the majority of people in Europe accepted Elbrus as the highest European mountain for all these years. In all the books I have read and people I have spoken to, the films I have watched, the documentaries I have seen not one of them made that claim. Suddenly, multiple articles in Wikipedia do claim that. I think you need cast iron citations or you need to balance the article with the counter claim in a clear and obvious way. Just my opinion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.187.233....
Someone who can should add the correct distance between the two summits. It's difficult to measure from google maps, because it's impossible to see where EXACTLY the highest tips are. GMRE (talk) 18:10, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
A few hours ago I added the Kabardian/Circassian name for Mount Elbrus along with its IPA alongside the Russian and Karachay-Balkar one, I also added the name in the etymology section under "other names" with its meaning. Apparently all of my edits have been removed by Materialscientist, claiming "rvt unsourced addition". Can anyone explain what it is that I have done wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qabarday (talk • contribs) 22:18, 31 May 2014 (UTC) 1. All content needs to be supported by WP:reliable sources and you did add content without providing references. What reliable source is available to support the Circassian name you added? Also, the lead section already is cluttered with language/pronunciation bits and needs pruning rather than increasing the clutter. That is my take on it, but I'm not answering for user:Materialscientist. Vsmith (talk) 23:05, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Den första som besteg berget var Kilar Chasjirov år 1829, som nådde den lägre östra toppen. Först 1874 bestegs den västra toppen av en brittisk-schweizisk expedition, ledd av guiden Achia Sottajev.
Idag är området öster om toppen en skidort med liftsystem upp till 3 800 meters höjd som erbjuder skidåkning året runt. Toppen är inte tekniskt svår att bestiga. Det finns en stollift som tar besökarna en bit upp. Varje dag under sommaren besöks toppen av grupper. Bestigningen är dock inte helt ofarlig och varje år omkommer människor på berget. Vädret är oberäkneligt och det kan snabbt bli mycket blåsigt.

Elbrus (balkarsky Минги-Tау, rusky Эльбрус, anglicky Mount Elbrus) je s výškou 5642 metrů nad mořem nejvyšší horou Kavkazu a Ruska. Podle některých názorů na vedení hranice mezi Evropou a Asií se vrchol Elbrusu nachází ještě v Evropě, což by z něho činilo nejvyšší evropskou horu (podrobněji tuto otázku rozebírá článek Evropa ).
エルブルス山（エルブルスさん、ロシア語: Эльбрус 英語: Elbrus ）はコーカサス山脈の最高峰である。 標高は5,642メートルで、ヨーロッパの最高峰でもある（地理的には大コーカサス山脈がヨーロッパとアジアの境界とされる）ほか、ロシア連邦自体の最高峰でもある。
