Downstream from the Bocca di Brenta, below the ridge between the Upper Castelletto and the Cima Sella is the Tuckett and Lower Brenta glacier (0.03 km2) not far from the Tuckett Higher glacier (0.04 km2).

In the Brenta Dolomites Group according to the New Italian Glacier Inventory published in 2015, based on the data collected in 2011, there are 20 small glaciers that extend over a total area of 0.86 km2. They are the glaciers that have been most influenced by the effects of climate change, having recorded the greatest contraction (up to 73%). Today, after almost a decade since the last official surveys, the situation has certainly changed. Some of the glaciers have disappeared or are running out.
