The Twin Otter was carrying out a circling climb procedure within the confines of a narrow valley in order to clear a 6000 feet ridge. Trying to clear a ridge at 4500 feet a steep turn was carried out. Sensing an impending stall, the pilot leveled the wings and flew the aircraft into the trees in a nose high attitude.
