Default Removing the Harmonic Balancer

Hi,

I am new to Diesel Bombers and am new to diesel trucks. I own a 2001 GMC with an LB7 Duramax. I am trying to remove the balancer to get to the water pump. Before I do something stupid, like break the bolt, which way does the bolt loosen (when facing the engine from the front)?

Thanks!
