The rest of the climb is fairly sustained throughout the striking arc of the left leaning fingers to hand crack that follows. There is an off-width pod and a bit of face climbing to negotiate before the anchors, but the grade lightens up quite a bit at this point.
There is a 10c variation that comes in from the left and takes a large flake to a right leaning crack before merging with the upper section. It is pretty fun but may be best to toprope since there is still a lot of cleaning up to do and some doubt as to how solidly some of the features - especially the rope eating flake you use for much of the beginning - are attached to the climb. In fact, the alarm clock-sized block I managed to dislodge in passing wasn't attached too well at all!
As a side note, Eye of the Eagle is more than a bit soft at the 11c it is listed at in Supertopo and in comparison to nearby climbs. Or, maybe Spacewalk is just too damned sandbagged!
