Is there a way to use a large number of vertical levels in the SCAM?

Is there a way to use a large number of vertical levels in the SCAM?

I'd like to reproduce a result from a paper in which they used GEOSS5 at 64 vertical levels so they could resolve the MSE maximum around the top of the boundary layer. I tried to do this with the CAM5 running in single column mode on my mac book pro, but I ran into this error when building the namelist:

I don't really understand why the cami_0000-01-01_64x128_L30_c090102.nc file is needed for a single column run. So is there a way to bypass this error? Or am I stuck using at most 30 levels?

Thanks,
Walter
