Pretty! My first thought was Lake Louise, but this
is just as beautiful.

1. Note triples 789 at ade6;136 at efi4.Unique possibilities to 35.
2. Note triple 267 at g9/i89;pair 89 at h78.If c8=4,i8=7,b8=2,a9=3=h5=d1,e1=5,i4=1,i1=4 and column a is devoid of 4.So e8=4.UPs to 40.
Here I thought I found a proof that g3=3, but it was a mistake.Maybe someone can take it from here.

Hi Alfred, in your step 2, has the possibility of (4)a2 been resolved?

Rather than the usual very detailed blog post, for today's puzzle I choose a sparsely illustrated solution path. This of course saved me much time..... - is lazy a virtue?

Of course lazy is a virtue. If we weren't lazy we'd still be living in caves.

Thanks Alfred, I think. What I meant, perhaps unclearly, is that from your forcing chain, I still have (4)a2 as a possibility. Thus, column a is not quite yet devoid of (4). Perhaps I missed something easy?

Steve's blog was great but I couldn't help wondering if the puzzle couldn't possibly be solved by more elementary means. Here’s the “lesser mortal” solution I’ve worked out with some help and polishing from Alfred (Thanks, Alfred!):

Starting at 22, given UPs to 23 --

possible solution similar to Steve's:
1.SST to UP35
2.K column(1)f234 > -1h2
3.(4=5)h2-(5=134)i147 > -4i1,FXW(3),-3i1
4.(3)h9=a9-(3=258)ac7b8-(2=7)i8-i1=YW(153)i14e1-(3)e4=d5 > -3h5, UP81
