Description Suggest change

This route climbs a slab of ice part way up a snow gully 200 yards up stream of the Pipeline access bridge. It got the name when the FA party drove a FWD truck up the riverbed and as close as possible to the route. It's The American Way.

Location Suggest change

Right side of the canyon 12.78 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway.
This route is located on the East side of the canyon across the Lowe River and is the first climb up stream of the pipeline access bridge.

Protection Suggest change

Ice screws, rappel off a V thread or alder.
