Power sterring line leak help

There is a bad leak in the power steering line that runs along where the oil cooler lines are (pic attached). It runs from the top of the steering rack along the oil cooler line then above the oil cooler itself and loops around and goes up into the side of the ps res. friggin newb right here, could someone tell me what this line is called? And possibly what i can do to fix this. Thx in advance.
Peace,
Nick

I had the same issue. Luckily my mechanic is nice and let it drip over night, cleaned it all up with break cleaner and then used a puddy compound called "Steele' or something close to that. Tada, problem fixed.
