This was embarrassingly difficult for me. I know there's something in there that I couldn't spot. Without getting into the gory details, I used an AIC which took out some 2s, a Skyscraper on 1 and an XY-Chain zapping some 9s.

I think this was my grid after basics:

Code:

+------------+------------+----------+
| 148 458 3  | 2   14  7  | 6  158 9 |
| 146 469 19 | 8   149 5  | 7  3   2 |
| 7   589 2  | 6   3   19 | 15 158 4 |
+------------+------------+----------+
| 9   7   58 | 3   6   28 | 25 4   1 |
| 168 68  4  | 19  159 28 | 3  25  7 |
| 2   3   15 | 17  157 4  | 9  6   8 |
+------------+------------+----------+
| 3   2   6  | 179 8   19 | 4  179 5 |
| 48  489 89 | 5   127 3  | 12 127 6 |
| 5   1   7  | 4   29  6  | 8  29  3 |
+------------+------------+----------+

After basics:
Code:
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 148 458 3   | 2   14  7   | 6   158 9   |
| 146 469 19  | 8   149 5   | 7   3   2   |

| 9   7   58  | 3   6   28  | 25  4   1   |
| 168 68  4   | 19  159 28  | 3   25  7   |
| 2   3  A15  | 17 C-157 4  | 9   6   8   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 3   2   6   | 179 8  @19  | 4  -179 5   |
| 48  489 89  | 5  -127 3   |#12  127 6   |
| 5   1   7   | 4   29  6   | 8   29  3   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+

SS on 1 in C67. Also, AB are a W-wing, eliminating 1 in C. Leading to:

Code:
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 148 458 3   | 2   14  7   | 6   158 9   |
| 146 469 19  | 8   149 5   | 7   3   2   |
| 7   589 2   | 6   3   19  |B15  158 4   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 9   7   58  | 3   6   28  | 25  4   1   |
| 168 68  4   | 19  159 28  | 3   25  7   |
| 2   3  A15  | 17 E57  4   | 9   6   8   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+
| 3   2   6   | 179 8   19  | 4   79  5   |
| 48  489 89  | 5  D27  3   |C12  127 6   |
| 5   1   7   | 4   29  6   | 8   29  3   |
+-------------+-------------+-------------+

AB, the W-wing, are pincers on 1. Also, AC are pincers on 1, look at CDEA. BC are a strong link on 1.

This is all possible only if A is 1.

(A and / or B is true. A and / or C is true. B and C are not both true. Then, A must be true.)

Thanks. I played the Skyscraper, missed the W-Wing and would've never figured out the last move.

Assuming that your W-Wing is a-b-c-d, then you need to extend it through -e-f in order to get r6c5<>1.
