There also is a sign exactly on the top of the pass. It says "entering Kings Canyon-Sequoia NP"

I recall being a little surprised to see that sign, because it's not on a marked trail. All things considered, it was a welcome sight.

When I went across Lamarck Col there was a large area of suncups leading up to the pass. Then that diagonal path through the snow that giantbrookie described did make the going relatively easy. An ice ax would be good insurance in case there's more snow than anticipated.
