Is this already a clipping mask? In that case you would need to release it first, then make a compound path from everything and then create the clipping mask again. In case it's not a clipping mask, just go ahead and create a compound path.

Could you please enlarge this bunch of pixels and embed them in your post? Thank you.

 

Maybe selecting the objects and then making a compound path could help.
