That would require pretty tame conditions or the rode is going to tear through you hands as you walk forward, thread it through a chock and cleat it down.

Try this:

Sail or motor into wind to a stop
Go to bow and drop 2 times depth in rode
Wait for wind to push back., no need to motor. Patience.
Ease more rode to proper scope and cleat.
Back against it if you must.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
