I have a feeling that 31....f4 is the mistake. Rb3 is a real threat and black's king can't cross the d-file, but black can bring his rook to e7. Black can easily stop white's king from advancing on the kingside with ....h6. The risk is if white's king marches across the dark squares to a7, but black can play ....Rd7 at the right moment and the king-and-pawn endgame should be a draw.
