The Moses Tower in Canyonlands has to make the list. Particularly via Primrose Dihedrals.

Medicine Man, CNM, for a route on a tower, if not the tower itself.

the trilogy, spider rock, cleopatra's needle, and the totem pole but note all are illegal and cleo you might get an ok to do

Mace, sedona

Texas tower (s utah, arch canyon)

the new route on the Pope will clean up real nice

torre trieste italy dolomites
fantastic!
neverseen the desert towers though.
the tre cime (dolomites) are great towers too, probably the most famous in the world. their north faces are amazing classics, and some are still bolt-free.

Washer Woman Arch. Me thinks it's the only named arch in a national park where climbing is legal.

You get to face climb her, um, face.

I like Todd's list, although I don't know much about Texas Tower.

Candidates for #11:

 Zeus
 Islet in the Sky

On Moses, Pale Fire looks like better climbing than Primrose Dihedrals. Now, if I could just get there when it's warm enough to climb on that shady side....

I'm 4/10 on Todd's list.
