Depending on *what* is eating the memory, you might be able to free enough to get in by shutting down all dynamic routing from the router's neighbours (like "BGP neighbours shutdown", OSPF interface passive, etc.)

If it's just a bug and there is no free memory / no large enough chunk left, then you'll need to reboot...

Hope I am Informative.

It doesn't help for your current situation, but we've seen memory get eaten up by PXE boot hosts continually rebooting and trying to reach a PXE boot server.
