I would just play 1.Rxh5. If 1.....Bxh5, then 2.Nf4 attacks the undefended bishop which retreats to e8 then white can play 3.Nxe6 because of the attack on the rook at c7, the knight is immune. I don't see a way to defend the g7 pawn effectively because of the latent pin on the queen by the rook on g1 should the black queen retake at g7.
