Col Est de Blanchen 3559 m Route archive

Arthur Cust mit B. Beytrison und J. Martin, 23. September 1879.

Dieser Pass befindet sich zwischen Petit Blanchen und Grand Blanchen. Er führt vom Val de Bagnes (Otemma) ins Valpelline (Comba de la Sassa). Zusammen mit dem Col de Sassa ergibt er einen Übergang von Chanrion nach Praz Raye. Der Col Est de Blanchen hat den Nachteil, wesentlich höher als viele andere Pässe zu sein.
