Hope that makes it clear why Christchurch isn't an option. The long and the short of it is that the hills are quite high and if you don't have the luxury of rnp curved paths you have to be able to reach a certain height ( depending on your current weight) in order to go IMC and still clear the hills if one engine gives up.
