I would chisel enough of the block to get the U bolt around the back of the pipe and then install one of these after you cut a hole with your grinder. I've done it and it works like a charm.

Even if you could cut a clean out into that, what's the point? That's a basement window sill next to it, so that could well be 5 feet off the ground. And if you're cabling a cleanout that's 5 feet off the ground, you may as well just go through a toilet, it's easier.

I've used those to tap mains, underground the biggest risk is shifting, but as a cleanout I think it would be great.

Outside clean out installed that afternoon. Old man who owns the duplex has had it for decades never had an issue before.

6" clay outside for about 50ft to city sewer. It's jetted/camera and now he is a yearly root customer.

Only stools were upstairs and the units were mirror images with back to back hook ups for everything.

Outside clean out was quickest cleanest way to get the place in service that day IMO
