I've never climbed a mountain in my life. Is it possible for me as a student to get so experienced within a couple of months to eventually climb the Mont Blanc this August?

Should be pretty ok to step over a pen

Unlikely and expensive. Mountaineering a rich guys sport. You could probably chuck a bunch of money at it and get taken up on a package holiday trekking dealy.

Russia is part of Europe nigga.
It's also part of Asia.
Elbrus is on the European side

I have a goal of bagging Rainier, with Hood and Adams as training mountains. But, even thats going to be expensive, and even harder is finding people to do this stuff with. I have a coworker whos done Rainier but he only works here part time and is almost impossible to pin down for a simple day hike much less this.

I will likely join the nearby mountaineering club and see what I can accomplish from there.

if you hire a guide, yes.
if you have a friend with the appropriate experience who will put in the time and go with you, and you can afford to buy or rent all the gear, yes.
if you're trying to learn it on your own from scratch, no (unless you are very talented or very lucky).
