Lemma 87.5.3. Let $X, x_ i, U_ i \to X, u_ i$ be as in (87.3.0.1) and assume $f : Y \to X$ corresponds to $g_ i : Y_ i \to U_ i$ under $F$. Assume $X$ satisfies the equivalent conditions of Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 65.49.1. Then there exists a factorization

of $f$ where $Z_{j + 1} \to Z_ j$ is the normalized blowing up of $Z_ j$ at a closed point $z_ j$ lying over $\{ x_1, \ldots , x_ n\} $ if and only if for each $i$ there exists a factorization

of $g_ i$ where $Z_{i, j + 1} \to Z_{i, j}$ is the normalized blowing up of $Z_{i, j}$ at a closed point $z_{i, j}$ lying over $u_ i$.
