I went till 8.g7 but believed it was lost. I analysed another reasonable try :

1.g6 Nxg6+ 2.Ke8 h2 3.Ra1+ Kb8 4.Kd8 Ne7 ! 5.c7+ Kb7 6.Rb1+ Kc6 7.Rc1+ Kd6 8.Rd1+ Ke6 9.Re1+ Kf6 10.Rxe7 g1=Q -+

to sum up : rather difficult to my taste, the final position is not very spectacular, but noticeable.

I looked at the same, and wasn't sure your final position is winning for Black after Re6+
