OB Slab is a nice area to escape the crowds. None of the routes are particularly worth writing home about, but one can potentially spend a fun half day here. Good for beginner groups. Around the corner to the left, Oh Pinyon Crack is a fun, short hand crack.

Getting There 

Park at the "Key's Corner" Boyscout Trailhead, 1/2 mile east of Trashcan Rock (on your left at a wide right turn if you are driving from town). Head north along trail as for Ellsmere Island and Cool Dome. Cut east (Cool Dome will be to your left) to a sunny slab.

Look Mom No Name.  Not the best photo, but the yellow line is just below the 5.7 thin crack that represents the technical part of this short route.

Look Mom No Name 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Outward Bound Slab
An easy scramble leads to a right-leaning thin crack that takes small gear and involves four or five moves at 5.7 before easing off to mellow face climbing to the left to share anchors with Look Mom No Hands and Look Mom No Sweat....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

I've climbed on OBS several times. I think it's a fun place to climb. great for beginners, and offers something for more advanced climbers also.
