    White loses in 12.

    59. Kh5 Kc4 60. g5 Qf3+ 61. Kh4 Kd4 62. g7 Qf7 63. g6 Qxg6 64. h7 Qxg6 65. Kh3 Ke4 66. h8=Q Qxh8+ 67. Kg3 Qh1 68. Kg4 Qg1+ 69. Kh4 Kf4 70. Kh3 Qh1# as one particular line with no improvements for white.

    59 Kh5 Kc4 then:
    60 g7 Qf7+ and the white king can no longer support his pawns - the black king gets over in plenty of time
    or
    60 h7 Qg7 and the black king can come over at his leisure
    or
    60 g5 Qh3+ 61 Kh4 Kd5 62 g7 Qf7 or 62 h7 Qf8 and the pawns are again stopped
