After: 1.Kb4 Rb5+, the thematic try: 2.Kc3? Rc5+ 3.Kd2 Rxa4 4.Rxa4+ Kb7 5.Rh4, allows 5. Rc6 6.h7 Rh6 ! Therefore 2.Kc4 !

Rc5+ 13.Kb4 Rb5+, and the original plan succeeds: 14.Kc3! Rc5+ 15.Kd2 Rxa4 16.Rxa4+ Kb7 17.Rh4, and since wPh5 has been eliminated (passively sacrificed), 17. Rc6 (for Rh6) is now to no avail.
