> Is there way to make cassandra throw away the offending column?

Running scrub should allow to get read of the row containing the
problematic column. Unfortunately it will discard the whole row, not
just the column.
However, since scrub takes a snapshot anyway (and should tell you
which sstable had the offending column), you could do that and keep
the bad sstable around to further investigate.

It's worth a try but there is a good change sstable2json will throw an
error too. It may have written enough at that point for you to find
which row is wrong though.
