Vertical (Russian: Вертикаль) is a 1967 Soviet sports drama film directed by Stanislav Govorukhin and Boris Durov. The film was Govorukhin's directorial debut.


The group of climbers led by an experienced Vitali Leonov went to Svaneti to conquer Mount Hor-Tau (fictional peak). Four go to the top and the bottom, in the camp, are radio operator Vladimir and physician Larisa. Volodya receives a message regarding an in-coming storm and passes it to the group, but one of the climbers hides this important information from his comrades. The climbers reach the top, but on the way back down they are caught in a snow storm. The conquerors face a difficult way back to base camp.
