After completion of the LHC8 run in 2012, the plan is to upgrade the LHC for operation close to its design energy sqrts=14 TeV, with a goal of collecting hundreds of fb^-1 of integrated luminosity. The time is propitious to begin thinking of what is gained by even further LHC upgrades. In this report, we compute an LHC14 reach for SUSY in the mSUGRA/CMSSM model with an anticipated high luminosity upgrade. We find that LHC14 with 300 (3000) fb^-1 has a reach for SUSY via gluino/squark searches

In the case where m(squark)>> m(gluino), then the LHC14 reach for chargino-neutralino production with decay into the Wh+MET final state reaches to m(gluino)∼2.6 TeV for 3000 fb^-1.
