Narrative:
The pilot was on a mountain flying continuation sortie to the west of Wanaka. Climbing up a gully at low airspeed, he observed the rotor rpm decaying and initiated a turn to the right. There was insufficient height available in which to recover rotor rpm, and the helicopter sank and collided with the side of the gully.
