I haven't really found what I'm looking for yet, some backpacking, lots of climbs and maybe some dayhikes. I've seen the Cascade Alpine Guide: Climbing and High Routes Rainy Pass to Fraser River and was wondering if it's any good for what I'm looking for. If you know of or have any other books that you like that'd appreciated also.

This peak is on the top 10 hardest peaks to climb in all of Washington it is most certainly not third class.

Naming those class 4 and above is fairly easy as there are so few of them. Also depends on what you call a peak. There are many sub "summits/spires" that could make the list longer.
