i recently made a trip into papoose flat with some friends. we went in via papoose flat road. there's one section with some switchbacks but no trouble spots. when we left we went out thru harkless flat. the intersection where you turn off the papoose road onto the harkless flat road is right at the top of the switchback hill. the road into harkless flat has no switchbacks. it goes straight down the riddgeline and then makes a left and goes straight down into a canyon before leveling out and emptying onto the flat. i would not want to take that steep section in the uphill direction. it was thrill enough just going/sliding down it.
