Long Description:
Ce puits commun qui atteint 33 m de profondeur, traverse les galeries des carrières souterraines de l'Ecorcheveau. Son nom provient des ce qu'il se met à "fumer" l'hiver dès que sa température avoisine -2°C sous réserve que la pression atmosphérique demeure modérée ou faible.
Dans les galeries souterraines règne ue température de 12 à 14°, aussi l'air chaud monte-t-il chargé d'une vapeur d'eau qui, en sortant du puits, se condense soudain en très fines gouttelettes en raison de l'abaissement des températures.

This common well, reaching 33 m deep, crosses the galleries of the underground quarries of Ecorcheveau. Its name derives from the fact that it begins to "smoke" the winter as soon as its temperature approaches -2 ° C provided that the atmospheric pressure remains moderate or weak.
In the subterranean galleries the temperature ranges from 12 to 14 °, and the hot air rises with a steam which, on leaving the well, suddenly condenses into very fine droplets, Lowering temperatures.
