Ascent Trip Report

I drove to Mount Beauty and then to Falls Creek. A few miles south from Falls Creek there is a sign for the Cope Track to Mt Cope. It was a short hike but it was raining with gale force winds. Several times I was blown off my feet. Not ideal hiking conditions. I did not linker on the summit.
