Take the super shotgun in front of you and use it to kill a revenant in an alcove on your left (plus an imp and two zombiemen on Hurt Me Plenty (HMP) skill level or higher), then head north into a cavern with demons, Hell knights and shotgun guys/chaingunners. Go up the steps on the east side to get a rocket launcher, then enter either of the east tunnels and push past some imps to reach a door. Open the door to confront some spectres (plus a pain elemental on HMP or higher, then go to the west wall to find the blue skull key in a niche.

Return to the north-west cavern and kill an arch-vile and shotgun guy (or baron of Hell on HMP or higher) that have teleported in, then go up the steps on the west side to a lion switch and push it to open a barrier just below. Go through this barrier and turn left to see a chaingunner (or arch-vile on HMP or higher) guarding the exit teleporter.
