W-Wing 13 in rows 6 & 7 with SL 1 in col 7 solves it.

This was one of those that offered numerous possibilities. W-Wings, as Clement noted, plus Coloring, Skyscrapers and XY-Chains.

Also a 138 XY-Wing pivot r7c4 setting r9c4 and r4c5<>8 solves it.

I hate to say this, since I am not too thrilled by UR solutions, but there is a type 3 UR on 39 which eliminates 1 in r3c5.
