After pondering the position for quite a long time :) I'm still unsure whether the following line is correct: 
1.Rf7 (threatening mate after Kg3) Ra3 
2.Rf5+ Kh4 
3.Rf6 Ra1 (if 3.... Kg5 4.Rg6+) 
4.Rxh6 Rf1+ 
5.Kg2 Rf8 
6.Rg6 Ra8 
7.h6 a3 
8.h7 a2 
9.Ra6! RxR 
10.h8:Q+ Kxg4 
(if 10. ... Kg5 11. Qh5+ Kf6 12.Qh6+) 
11.Qc8+ Kg5 
12.QxR and White wins.

After sizing up the apparently simple-looking endgame position I would give 2 main lines as I see it: 
(A) 1.Rf7 (threatening mate after Kg3) Ra3 2.Rf5+ Kh4 3.Rf6 Ra1 (If 3. ... Kg5 4.Rg6+) 4.Rxh6 Rf1+ 5.Kg2 Rf8 6.Rg6 Ra8 7.h6 a3 8.h7 a2 9.Ra6! RxR 10.h8:Q+ Kxg4 11.Qc8+ Kg5 12.QxR wins. 
(B) 1.Rf7 Kh4 2.Rf6 a3 3.Rxh6 Ra1 4.Ra6 a2 5.Ke4 Kxg4 6.h6 Rh1 7.Rxa2 Rxh6 8.Rg2+ Kh3 (If 8. ... Kh4 9.Rh2+ Kg5 10.RxR KxR 11.Kf5 Kg7 12.Ke6 Kf8 13.e4 Ke8 14.e5! and White wins) 9.Rg7 Black's King is cut off and with best play White should win.
