Good hike/climb nearish Portland in March

Hi All,

I'm looking for a good, hard, climb or hike in the Portland area (few hours away is fine) for the wife and I to do in March. I know that there's a plethora of trails all over the place, but:

I have alpine skills, know how to use crampons and an ice axe. The wife does not, and this isn't a teaching trip. I'd like to find something that ends with a nice ...

Question about Forbidden Peak, West Ridge Question about Forbidden Peak, West Ridge

My climbing partners and I have successfully climbed Rainier (Disappointment Cleaver route) a couple times and are looking for the next challenge for Summer 2016. We are all novices without any experience beyond Rainier, some much smaller climbs, and the local indoor climbing gym.
