Running galvanized pipe along wall


I have a need to run about 40' of 1" galvanized pipe attached to an outside wall, with two elbows in the run to accomodate a crawl space vent that is in the way. This may seem like a very stupid question, and in fact maybe I'm missing something, but it seems like once I start attaching pipe to the wall, I will have no way to get a wrench in there to tighten the fittings. I've done plenty of surface mounted work with EMT, which uses slip-in compression fittings, but not with rigid pipe that I have the crank the hell out of. Maybe if I leave the straps a little loose, the pipe will have enough play in it to pull it out far enough at the end to get a wrench on it? I know it can be done, because I've seen it done on plenty of buildings, but I just can't seem to wrap my mind around how; is there some kind of trick to it?

I can't use any other type of material because this is for gas, and galvanized steel is required outdoors.

Leave the mounting straps off or loose near the end so you can flex the pipe for tightening.

Ok, thanks. Knew I was probably overthinking it.
