Lemma 35.21.4. Let $f : U \to V$ be an étale morphism of schemes. Let $u \in U$ and $v = f(u)$. Then $\mathcal{O}_{U, u}$ is a regular local ring if and only if $\mathcal{O}_{V, v}$ is a regular local ring.

Proof. The algebraic statement we are asked to prove is the following: If $A \to B$ is an étale ring map and $\mathfrak q$ is a prime of $B$ lying over $\mathfrak p \subset A$, then $A_{\mathfrak p}$ is regular if and only if $B_{\mathfrak q}$ is regular. This is More on Algebra, Lemma 15.44.3. $\square$
