Scramble up the slab below the massive arch of Soria Moria, and find a small crack and flake system that allows access, via a left-leaning line, onto the face above. Climb that (awkward 5.9, crafty gear) to just below the right hand edge of a large roof on the arete to the left of the right-leaning arch.
Proper gear and sling-work will allow for minimal drag, but if you goof, you may be forced to do this line in 2 pitches (as described in the guidebook). Split left and traverse out left under the big roof to come out around its left side. The optional belay is here, but is not a great arrangement - skip this if possible (we did) and continue climbing. Trend up and right, now climbing on the left side of the arete, always within reach of it to it's end, and then up one of two crack options to the bolt and chain anchor.
