How to reach the exit in Doom level 21, Mt. Erebus:
The exit is on the west side of the map, and you'll have to
step out into the lava to get there. To get inside the
exit chamber you'll need the blue key. If you already have
that key, skip down to "THE EXIT", below.
Along the middle of the north edge of the map is a large,
diagonally-oriented building, with a small wooden door in
its southeast wall.
At low skill levels, the blue key will be just outside of
this door; simply grab it and head for the exit.
To get the blue key at higher Skills, open that door, step
in and turn left. Scan the middle of the southwest wall,
and look for a small candle on the floor at the base of the
wall. Open the wall panel just behind the candle, and step
on the teleporter that's revealed.
You'll re-appear in a smaller, separate area of the map,
located just east of the rest of the level, and you'll be
standing on a narrow platform that surrounds a small square
Go to the east side of this building, and open the small
door there. Step in and Activate the switch at the
opposite side of the room. This opens up the southeast
corner of the room, where the yellow key is; Grab it.
Activating the other switch in the north half of the room
will open the northeast corner, allowing access to a
Leave this building, and open the yellow-keyed door at the
north end of this area to reveal a teleporter. Step on,
and you'll re-appear at the northeast tip of a 3-spoked
building in the northwest corner of the map.
Turn around and go forward and left, to the southeast spoke
of this building, where you can find the blue key.
Go to the west-side spoke and Activate the switch there,
and the tip of the northeast spoke will open up, allowing
you to leave this building.
Look on the Automap. Near the west edge of the map, out in
the lava, is a tiny 6-sided structure. Immediately north
of it is a long dark wall.
Look for a small open doorway in this wall, just a couple
of paces northwest from that small hexagonal structure.
Step inside and follow the short tunnel to a blue-keyed
barrier, and open it to access the exit.
