Fun! Yup, I agree with … on this one, Echninocereus rigidissimus , known locally as “Arizona rainbow cactus”. Nice big specimen too!

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.
