Client ID Global Tracking Help

This is not SEO related but client related. 
There is a website that uses Google Analytics tracking to identify each one of their users. 
This website has a blocking system that is preventing me from viewing some of their content, which I'd like to view.

I figured out that the website uses the Google Analytics cookie to somehow identify me.

Is there a way I can somehow spoof the client-ID from Google Analytics to basically make a new identity for myself? I'm also running the Google Analytics opt-out Chrome Extension.

Have you tried disabling js in your browser?

Might require js to display it.. 
what if you enable js and block cookies.
As for being seen as a different user.. simply clearing cookies and browser cache should do that.. 
Unless the site is using GA User ID feature and is applying some kind of identification when you log into the website or similar.
