The main XLR outs (switchable between mic. and line are on the other side:

You can make a pad, it's just some resistance added to the cable. I'm not sure If you can find a off the shelf padded 1/8" cable.
OR you can use the padded XLR's to go to the DSLR and the 1/8" to go to the recorder (it is the tape out after all). That -10 will work nicely with the unbalanced in's on your recorder. It's not the greatest connector but you can get right angle ones and you are talking a short in-bag run, and it's a line level, so you really don't have an issue with having unbalanced lines.

For those who care to know the outcome.
I ran a test today 1/8" to XLR > XLR -10db pad > XLR to 1/8". When feeding signal the levels on camera needed to be just a click or two over off (meaning 7D's crappy preams were turned down). The recording is clear. Though i noticed that h264 compression takes away just a bit of richness in the audio.

h.264 is a video compression. The audio is probably MP3? or something similar.
