Coolant leak from rear of passenger side head, blown gasket???

I'm assuming I have a blown head gasket. I have coolant dripping from the rear of the passenger side head. Anyone else have this leak which turned out to be a gasket?

Sounds like the egr cooler seal is blown or the hose going to the oil cooler. The clamps going to the cooler hose have to be tight. I would climb on top of the engine and check it out. That is my 2 cents.

Where was it leaking on the heater control valve? I don't see any signs of leaking in the pic.

Funny how it makes you happy to see a heater control valve leak on a 6.0. LOL

Releaved I'm sure is a understatement.....
