Annie "Basecamp Annie" Duquette
Originally from South Orange, Massachusetts, Annie Duquette first came to Alaska in 1990 and spent over ten years on Denali during the climbing season as the on-site manager of the climbing and aviation basecamp located at 7200 feet. She is known as "Basecamp Annie." In 2000, she stepped down from this position in order to enjoy life at her new home outside of Talkeetna, Alaska. Annie is world-famous as the liaison to the mountain, being everything from radio dispatcher to camp counselor.
