Enter the southernmost area, and head east to find the exit switch.

In a way similar to how Ultimate Doom's E3M1 was reused as the first part of E3M9, this map was reused as the first part of the super secret level, Map32, of this wad's sequel Scythe II, but upon flipping the exit switch you'll realize it's not really an exit, and you have more to do. The style of gameplay also changes dramatically, from an easy warmup level into a BFG-oriented slaughter.
