We present results on the interplay of the LHC and direct dark matter(DDM) experiments in probing the far focus point (FFP) region of natural supersymmetry, within the MSSM framework. This parameter space is characterised by low values of mu-parameter and a compressed spectrum for DM and the next-to-lightest neutralino and the lightest chargino -- which can only be probed via mono-jet signatures -- the subject of our analysis. The low signal-to-background ratio is a challenging but important characteristic of this search and the control of the systematic error is crucial. We take into account a) realistic systematic errors and b) fast detector simulation which are both essential in estimating the correct LHC sensitivity to the FFP. As a result we have have found a high degree of the complementary between the LHC and DDM search experiments in this special and well-motivated region.
