Abstract: In the title compound, C23H34O4, the C/D and D/E rings are trans fused and the A/B ring possesses an anti fusion. The two cyclohexane rings adopt a chair conformation while the cyclohexene ring exhibits a half-chair conformation. The cyclopentane ring displays an envelope conformation with the C atom bearing the methyl group as the flap. In the crystal, the molecules are linked by O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the b axis.
