After ...Rc8, the black king is in a prison cell.

1.c8=N+ maybe? (no queen because of R1c2+ and there is no perpetual)

if 1...RxN then 2.Ra3-b3 perpetual check

the knight cannot be captured and so the endgame is drawn (I think!)

@george it's no perpetual if i walk with my king to c4?

if the king walks to c4, Rd3 is the move.

I hope George will try to re-solve the puzzle reading comment 4, but without reading comment 5. Otherwise the best part just got spoilt for him.
