I've only done Pace Col south to north in early Sept. The route finding is straight forward. Without snow there is considerable talus on both sides, south more than north IIRC, but nothing unusual in a cross country Sierra pass. Interestingly enough, the crux of the route was the 30 to 40 ft above Red and White Lake where I gave up on finding a class 2 path and chose an easy class 3 ten feet or so.
