More pawn ending fun

After blundering in my last K+P ending (as shown here), I decided to have a look at some other K+P positions, if only to reacquaint myself with some of the standard endgame ideas (or tricks!). I came across the given position, which is a study by Troitzky. It is white to play and win, and without giving too much away, it shows that a lone king can hold back 3 connected (but unassisted) passed pawns.
