The tallest ones I know about are the Jitsie's, they have some that are up to a 6" bend/rise/upsweet.

The S3 "Buffalo Bars" have some serious upsweep. I tried a set on my '14 GG because I was chasing taller bars, which they are at the ends, but I just didn't like the exaggerated upsweep angle they used to achieve this, for me the std flatter Renthal fatbars mounted on S3 adjustable clamps worked a treat because they lifted the bars 10-13mm and gave me heaps of forward/back adjust-ability. It's possible the Buffalo Bar is what you're seeking for your cactus wrists?

I wonder if you could put your original bars in a vice. put a scaffold bar on the end and put a bit more bend/upsweep on them?

I haven't tried this myself, so I don't know if it would work.

No, don't even consider it.

You can roll yours forward and the sweep will add to the height. Works well if you like riding over the front more.

that's a different issue then I thought.  

You might look looking at MX bars as they have a different sweep in them than trials bars.  Can't say they will work but worth an online search I bet.
