Check out mountwashington.org for more details.
In my opinion, there are just a few places in the east that can rival anything out west in terms of insane weather and conditions. The highest mountains in the Whites (Presidentials, ridges forming Franconia notch), the Adirondack High Peaks in NY, and finally, Katahdin in Maine.
In my opinion, Katahdin is a lot more impressive than Washington though, just not as well known...
