    I’d start pulling out
    But pull it gently so it doesn’t snap

    I’ve had an outbreak of this in the past, as above you can just pull it out, it only has very short roots to grip the rock so by teasing it off gently you can get most of each stem in one go.
    I don’t recall it being too difficult to get rid of, but I may have just been lucky.
