We briefly review the motivations and features of focus point supersymmetry and in particular the focus point region of the CMSSM. Applying the constraint that the neutralino is a thermal relic, we examine current and projected collider and dark matter constraints on the focus point region. We demonstrate that the focus point region is currently constrained by multiple dark matter experiments, and future sensitivy on multiple fronts will probe large portions of the parameter space.
