By letting rope slip through the belay device?

Or, clip a piece in the anchor, avoid the FF2, and also lower the impact by having the belayer launch towards the anchor. If something like a FF2 looks like a possibility, then the belayer could use a long safety so there is more rope between them and the top piece in the anchor.

Assuming the anchor holds in the upwards direction, if not, clipping the rope to the anchor may be a bad idea.
