Hoagmoar

 

Every year in the heart of the Austrian mountains a group of locals meet in a natural arena on top of the Hundstein mountain to wrestle in an event called the Hundstoaranggeln.

Atop the 2117 meter peak, men have competed for the title of Hoagmoar for over 500 years.

The title would imbue one with the power to rule over regional land disputes.

Today the event serves as a cornerstone of local tradition and feels like a moment stuck in time.
