Thanks a lot to everyone who responded with a solution.
Special thanks to Darren Dunham.
We finally mounted the filesystem as READ-ONLY and pulled off some
important to another new filesystem.
Data transfer is still ON as the filesystem is 90GB with about 9 million
files in it.
Thanks again for all the help.
Detailed solution from Darren and my original question is below.

That takes quite a bit of problems to cause that.
I don't know any way to mount the disk and fix that.
*however*. You might be able to mount the disk read-only
mount -o ro /dev/rdsk/cxtxdxsx /mount/point
If that works, dump/copy the good data that you can get off the disk and
then newfs it.
