and then what after KxN or Kb7 or b1=Q?

1. Nb6+ Kb8 2. Rc3! b1=Q 3. Nd7+ Ka8 4. Ra3+ Kb7 5. Rb3+ Qxb3 6. Nc5+

Very nice puzzle. It took a fair amount of playing around on a real board to get that.

yep. The Ra7+ Kb8 Ra6 attempt fails on b1=Q Rb6+ Ka8! (RxQ? stalemate)

A good one, there are 3 good looking tries
First try is a stalemate.

2nd try nearly works but Black can play 2...Kb8

And this just fails.

So solution is as posted by meadows

You guys are terrible. Simply Pawn to a8=Q wins.
