hoisting a large anchor

i need to set a 350 lb pyramid anchor from my 30 ft. sailboat. can the main halyard handle this kind of weight? i only need a few inches to clear the deck and lower it into the water. my main halyard is new 5/8 braided nylon which should be more than capable of holding the weight but what about the rest of the rigging? anyone have any experience with something similar???
