It depends on how long you are willing to wait. It will take months of maintenance spraying with roundup or a similar product to kill what seems to be pretty substantial growth. What I do is duct tape gloves to long sleeves and duct tape my shoes to my pants, tuck in my shirt and just go out one day and start ripping it up. You may even what to put some big pairs of throwaway socks on your shoes. I wouldn't go rolling around on that hill anytime soon though because whatever the plant touches will have traces of the poison on it for a little while.
