You turn it counter clockwise.

If you are doing this with hand tools, you have two choices.

1)purchase a crank pulley holder tool, that will hold the crankshaft and allow you to break the bolt loose.

2)remove the starter and put a pry bar on the flywheel, this will also stop the engine from turning over while you remove the bolt.

If you have an air impact gun that will work too.
