This is the top-rope route immediately right of El Sol.
The bottom one-third is almost pure friction climbing on some pretty slick sandstone. It is listed in Stewart Green's Red Rock guidebook as 5.7, but I thought the bottom third of Frigga was definitely tougher than anything on Helios (5.7+) which is two routes left. It is worth a climb after doing El Sol.
This line goes to the farthest right anchors on Solar Slab.
Climb El Sol, then once on top traverse right 15 feet from El Sol anchors to set the top-rope on the two Frigga anchors.
I recommend buying Stewart Green's Red Rocks Guidebook at Garden of the God's visitor's center for complete Red Rocks route descriptions/locations.
2-bolt anchor at top, but no protection beneath.

If climbed straight up, crux move near bottom probably goes at least 5.8. Green's guidebook shows this route in the sketch but describes the start as for El Sol before veering right, which may explain his 5.7 rating.
