Echninocereus rigidissimus… possibly ssp. rubispinus
Fun! Yup, I agree with … on this one, Echninocereus rigidissimus , known locally as “Arizona rainbow cactus”. Nice big specimen too!
Could be, Echinocereus rigidissimus var. rubrispinus
It seems to match with Echinocereus rigidissimus var. rubrispinus on searching.
Will wait for experts to comment.

Would need a side view …, Really cannot tell what it is.
This is the only picture I have. Will try to take more pictures when I visit next.
Looks like a Echinocereus rigidissimus var. rubrispinus graft, but need a “profile” pic to tell for sure.
