In my opinion, neither one really fits the bill, according to the OP. Neither have

a heck of a climb, lots of elevation gain


In my opinion, they both belong to a different group of hikes -- which are those that should be longer. They are really short and steep, for no good reason. I think they would be much better hikes if they were longer. On the other hand, if Dickerman was much longer, it would be too long.

I also don't think Park Butte is in the same category -- it is a different beast. Green Mountain is close, but never feels like quite the grunt that Dickerman (or the other peaks) are. Lookout Mountain off the Cascade River definitely is. That is an even gruntier grunt than Dickerman, which may be exactly what the OP wanted.

I'd throw Mt David on the list too even though you go downhill the first half mile

Goat Mountain also - a steady thousand feet per mile in four and a half miles

Id go to Round Lake.  Actually not the lake but continue on the ridge toward Glacier Peak.

Get a lookout guidebook. Tons of interesting hikes to summits. Or look on Eric Willhite's lookout site.

Speaking of danger, there's been many deaths on Dickerman in the winter. They aren't from avalanches, but from slipping down a gully partway up. I ran into one accident there where a teenager somehow let go his ice axe, tumbled down the gully, over a waterfall, and ended up partially under snow in the creek. Took 9 hours before he was helicoptered out. He was unconscious for a week and suffered some brain damage.

https://avalanche.state.co.us/caic/acc/acc_report.php?acc_id=445&accfm=inv  Yes please be safe regarding avalanche terrain in the winter months.  Some of the approaches may also be longer than what you are asking about with Dickerman.

Church Mtn. on 542 and also Welcome Pass/Excelsior Peak

Also, if you want something closer with a little more challenge and a more rugged route, Vesper Peak and Mt. Pugh, though I would only do these in the summer

Clearly we're talkin' competin' here. Talkin' going HARD on a summit 'pproach.

Here's the deal. I recommend the King. SNOW king.

Unless your headin' east then any ol dusty steep will do. Just do ridgeline reps if need be to get that workout in!
