A view from the top would make the ID more reliable, but I can already tell you that it´s probably not a Trichocereus. There´s some bluing around the areoles that doesn´t occur on Trichocereus in this form. With the color changes on the areole it´s probably some Myrtillocactus species or form, or another columnar cactus similar to it.

Yeah, it´s probably a Myrtillocactus. The only real alternative is Polaskia chichipe, which looks very similar at times.
