Cols and passes serves the same purpose -- they are crossover from one valley into another. From geomorphological point of view, the Col is a saddle point between two peaks, whereas the pass is a saddle point between two valleys. For example, Auden's Col is a saddle point between Gangotri III (6580 m) peak and Jogin I (6465 m) peak of the Garhwal Himalayas.
