Is this place any good? How polished? I've been to Freyr.....

It's ok, I'm sure there are better areas. I go because it's four hours drive from where I live and one hour from being rained off in the Dolomites. Not sure how high on my list it would be if I were travelling from the UK.

The popular areas immediately around the town are indeed pretty polished but still climbable. I've seen worse e.g. parts of Stoney. There are plenty of more recently developed outlying areas that are still fine, are in the current guidebook, and not far to get to if you've got a car.

Lots of bolted multipitch that is supposed to be good, but I haven't tried it yet.

Probably the cheapest gear shops in Europe. If you need new shoes, rope etc. wait until you get there before you buy them.

The one published by Versante Sud. Don't know what the English edition is called.
