Bummerville . Sunset Park on Lookout Mtn is a nice alternative, slightly different rock, less indian creek colored orange rock, more or a bland grayish tint. Fewer cracks in general too, but there are literally hundreds of awesome routes. Do Dodge City (5.9), Alpha Omega (10a/b) and Rusty's Crack (10b) for a start. Also, there's a great collection of 3 routes side by side that are good to give you a fast tour of a few different grades as you walk climber's left at the cliff base. Bill's Route (5.8), RJ Gold (5.9) and Jefferson Airplane (5.10a) will get you warmed up.
For a full value day, finish your climbing by going up One-Ten (5.6) with your pack on to avoid hiking up the stairs to the parking lot.
Bring some Alize and a lady friend for the sunset, it's spectacular.
