Does this bolt have a left-hand thread?

No it's a normal right hander, 22mm hex, threads have a locking compound on them, because of this it's advised to loosen it with the engine hot, a good quality socket will be required even then.
Leave the wheel on and stick it in 5th to stop the engine turning, don't be tempted to use the timing peg.
Sound's like you are doing the timing belt.
Good luck
