Yes, not one PV possible, but many moves, all with a good score but none showing real progress.
A correspondence game from the initial diagram:



We might assume they used strong engines, though the year isn't given, so this might be an important line if not the one PV.

Thanks Jean Paul, interesting that this was actually a game. I think they may have used computers but not always typical computer moves, or at least not always what Stockfish would have played. But I only did a quick blundercheck. Then again, I don't know because a Savo Scanto on ICCF only is rated 1452. A Piotr Krol 1660 (but that might be different players, I see only a single game but not this game with a quick Google check.)

I don't think White was in real danger but I wonder if White really planned this :) Curious what year this was and if they used computers :)

are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

I looked at the ICCF ratings list, and W. Krol (White) is rated 2226. (Top-10 players are rated 2622+.) M. Santo (Black) doesn't appear on the list. I think it'd need a good CC database to find the game, but it must have been computer-assisted. It's just a question of whether it was e.g. 2006-era engines or 2018-era.

I have more to post later, e.g. SF's eval of the final position.
