Oct-24-13  paramount: 69.Kd4?? is a fatal mistake!!!
Its so easy to imagine that the one of the two ways to salvation is to put rook on f3 square.

1st line
69.Rh3!! f2
70.Rf3....just that simple!!

Another way is of course juxtaposing the king to the hostile pawn

2nd line
69.Kd3 Rb2
70.Ra8!! (not 70.Rh3 Rxb3+ 71.Rc2 f2 and black queens) Rxb3+ 71.Kd2 Kg5
72.Ra2 Kf4
73.Ra4+ Kf5
74.Ra5+ Kg4 (nah, i suspect this position is draw...maybe you can refute it)) 75.Ra2 f5 76.Ke1 Rb1 77.Kf2 Rh1 78.Ra4+ f4
79.h3+ Rxh3
80.Ra7 Rh2+
81.Kf1 Rc2
82.Rc2 Rg7+...its draw....this line i played against the machine. But actually after i checked again you can improve the defense...

Instead of 74.Ra5+, its better the immediate 74.Ra2!, with this move you save a tempo so when the black king breach to h3 ht white king should in f2 and when the black rook try to go through the first rank, the white rook can always threat the black back pawn.

74.Ra2 Kg4
75.Ke1 Kh3
76.Kf2 Rb1

You can see that the 1st line is much easier. And the 2nd line offers black to more choices how to attack. Anyway, both lines should be the easy draws.
