Located just left of the blocky pillar where Revelations is located, Blasphemy starts atop a block that can be gained by climbing the corner to the right of the route. It's best for your belayer to remain on the ground just to be safe.
Move right on the block and clip the first bolt without making any real move onto the face. Use fun pockets through the first few bolts. The climbing quickly changes style to a more finesse stemming exercise before reaching a mini roof that can be perplexing. Find a decent hold in the corner under the roof that gets better with proper body positioning. Pull up over the roof and enjoy easy climbing to the anchors.
This is a really fun climb based on the variety of styles combined in a single pitch and a few committing moves.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
