XY-Wing 38 13 18 pivoted in r5c2; r1c6<>8 solves it.
Also the the following:-
Remote Pairs 13; r1c2<>3
A kite on 3 originating from BOX 1; r6c5<>3
BUG+1; r2c2=3.

"Is this the simplest after-basics VH diagram ever?"

It's the simplest I've ever seen. Surely it must be the simplest possible, or close to it, that still needs a "very hard" technique.

Amazing.

examples have been seen where only 11 cells remain unsolved

here's one from Ruud (2006.Feb.11)
( 2nd puzzle in his post )
Code:

 . . . | 1 . . | 9 8 .
 4 . . | . 5 2 | 6 . .
 . . . | . . . | . 1 .
-------+-------+------
 9 . . | . 4 . | . 3 .
 . 7 . | . . . | . 9 .
 . 6 . | . 8 . | . . 2
-------+-------+------
 . 1 . | . . . | . . .
 . . 9 | 8 2 . | . . 7
 . 4 3 | . . 5 | . . .


    24 cells given + 46 "singles" = 70 cells known --
    .3.1.498548195267359..3821492854713637521649816438975281.4.35.9659821347.43.958.1
