If supersymmetry is observed at the LHC, the parameters of the MSSM will be measured at the electroweak scale. Using SPS1a as an example, the expected precision on the parameter determination, including a proper treatment of experimental and theoretical errors, is discussed. Particular attention is paid to the question of degenerate solutions at the LHC. Using the SFitter framework a full bottom-up reconstruction of the unified parameters at the unification scale is performed with a full propagation of all errors. The difference between the MSSM and the high scale MSSM parameter determination is analyzed in detail. Talk based on arXiv:1007.2190
