Power steering low side hose

Guys - this is more of a question about technique than anything else. Here's my situation - The low side power steering hose connected to the steering box (not the pump) is on there really good. My first try was putting a crow's foot wrench on there to get it off. The edges are now rounded and the thing is still stuck. Used PB Blaster and now have let it sit overnight. I've tried vice grips on it to get it off yesterday but still stuck. Keep in mind that there is very little clearance down there.

Any ideas are appreciated.
Thanks,

This is the right tool for the job, if it's not too late. A regular open end wrench will get you in trouble every time.

If it's too late for that, use a vice grip that has a v-shaped jaw, like this:

It doesn't depend on the corners being intact.

Good luck.
