    I see that 37...a4 seems to force three passed pawns but does that help black? Maybe this can draw? I seems the best chance.

    If Kd1, c2 +, king has to go back to c1 and then black gets the pawn fork and it looks like the pawn queens to add insult to injury If Kb1, still runs into c+ and now the king has to retreat again, but away from the action and again, the d pawn advances and it is now supported by the c pawn so it either queens or gets rook or both.

    C2+ relinquishes control of d2 for the king.
