The standard event_filter config states

    <key name="KEY_LEFTSHIFT"/> <key name="KEY_RIGHTSHIFT"/>
    <key name="KEY_LEFTCTRL"/> <key name="KEY_RIGHTCTRL"/>
    <key name="KEY_RIGHTALT"/> <!-- AltGr -->
    <rom name="capslock"/>

So if you didn't change this, the combination you look for is

  <!-- SHIFT-ALTGR -->
  <map mod1="true" mod2="false" mod3="true" mod4="false">

Please note, that CTRL is set to false and, thus, must not be pressed
for the mapping to work. If you use the xkb2ifcfg tool [1] it generates
mapping entries for all supported combinations.
