It is white to move.

This really surprised me when I come across it. It seems like an optical illusion, there seems to be no chance of  the white king catching the black pawn on h5 to achieve a draw.

However it can be done, the explanation is given in Mark Dvoretsky`s Endgame Manual in DVD format.   The game illustration describes it as a miracle! 

Most of the stuff I have come across in the DVD I was completely unaware of, I have recently purchased this at the e2e4 Gatwick tournament.

Ecclesiastes 12:12
And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
