Limbo is located south of Empire.

Mount Limbo

"DGN, AMS Lovelock 1:250; in connection with Purgatory Peak (q.v.); description is in agreement with application on county map and Kumiva Peak 2SE 1:24 preliminary quad; the field engineer suggested the entire mile long summit be named Mt. Limbo, but staff feels the ridge is not distinct enough from the surrounding terrain and therefore the name should continue to be applied only to the peak; not in UNSF"[1]

Appears as Mt. Limbo in the 1954 Pershing County Map[1]
