Rappelling of the top anchors is your best bet on most routes, as you can rap down to the top anchors on most climbs, but climbing out of them is not so simple.
You will find this area in the shade in the afternoon, though in the mornings it will be quite hot.
It should also be noted that The Totem Pile (5.10d), located on the mid right section of the road cut, a former runout rated Rclimb is now bolted.
From the west (I-80 and Soda Springs) head up over the pass. head downhill over the bridge, and continue past The Peanut Gallery (the large slablike rock on your left), to the next roadside rock on the left, which is The Road Cut.
Park on either side of the road, though there is a definate pullout on the right side of the road.
From the east this is the first established area near the road. It comes a couple bends in the road after you pass the large Black Wall.
