Published EGRET spectra from blazers extend only to 10 GeV, yet EGRET has detected approximately 2000 γ-rays above 10 GeV of which about half are at high Galactic latitude. We report a search of these high-energy γ-rays for associations with the EGRET and TeV detected blazers. Because the point spread function of EGRET improves with energy, only ∼2 γ-rays are expected to be positionally coincident with the 80 blazars searched, yet 23 γ-rays were observed. This collection of >10 GeV sources should be of particular interest due to the improved sensitivity and lower energy thresholds of ground-based TeV observers. One of the blazers, has the highest energy γ-rays detected by EGRET from any blazar with and is a BL Lac type blazar with unknown redshift.
