There are probably many ways but all would change in the field. The only time I can see leaving the anchor is if the leader is unconscious. I would pull all tension out of the rope to the leader and tie it off to the anchor using a prusik to temporarily hold the tension. I would then climb the rope to assist the leader using prusiks for protection while cleaning all but the last two pieces. Once he/she is freed I would down climb on prusik and lower him to me. When I tie in I don't come down unless he/she does with me.
