We have studied numerically the quantum-classical crossover in the escape rate for a uniaxial spin system with an arbitrarily directed field. Using the simple quantum transition state theory, we have obtained the boundary separating the first- and the second-order crossover and the escape rate in the presence of the transverse and longitudinal field. The results apply to the molecular nanomagnet, .
