I haven't climbed there myself, but i have heard plenty of stories from other people.
The long trad routes on the cima grande, marmolada, etc. sound long, loose, tricky route finding, and sketchy gear -
kind of like 5 or 6 milbrooks stacked on top of each other with most of them being 5.8 and up. There is also a fair bit of
sport climbing in the area which is most likely pretty high end.
There are lots of stories about the dolomites in various issues of climbing or rock and ice-check their websites. i believe
the rock and ice superguide(should be at rock and snow now) had a little blurb about it as well.
ps, take everything i just said with a grain of salt. most of the info i have is from drunk climbers telling stories
around a bonfire at hueco tanks, *sigh* petes just isn't the same anymore since they closed hueco :(
