Cactus Flower Tower (CFT) is on the north side of Mount Wilson, and formally has a prominence of only 177 feet relative to Wilson. But there is no way to reach CFT from Wilson without some serious rappels, and it sure looks like a distinct peak, more so than Polemonium (which has just 160' prominence). The easiest route up CFT involves one mandatory 5.3 chute and one class 4 chockstone. Link to trip report for Cactus Flower Tower in Red Rock CNCA
