High spin states have been populated in [Formula Presented] using the reaction [Formula Presented] at 130 MeV. The γ rays have been detected with the EUROGAM2 array. The level structure of [Formula Presented] has been investigated. Several bands have been identified and established over a wide range of spin. They are interpreted using the Nilsson-Strutinsky cranking formalism and explained in terms of band terminations. Their configurations are built from the valence particles and valence holes relative to a [Formula Presented] core: [Formula Presented] protons (and [Formula Presented] proton holes) and [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] neutrons. After [Formula Presented] is the second heavy nucleus and the first odd-odd nucleus in which configurations in the valence space are followed from low spin up to their termination.
