You can do this by bleeding a radiator into a tub.The worry is why the pressure is so high to start with, it sounds like the filling loop (silver flexible pipe) is not turned off correctly or is passing water into the system.You should remove this first and see if it drips, this would be my first suggestion as the alternative (split plate heat exchanger) is more expensive.
