Lemma 61.18.3. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $\overline{s}$ be a geometric point of $S$. Let $\mathcal{U} = \{ \varphi _ i : S_ i \to S\} _{i\in I}$ be a pro-étale covering. Then there exist $i \in I$ and geometric point $\overline{s}_ i$ of $S_ i$ mapping to $\overline{s}$.

**Proof.**
Immediate from the fact that $\coprod \varphi _ i$ is surjective and that residue field extensions induced by weakly étale morphisms are separable algebraic (see for example More on Morphisms, Lemma 37.64.11.
