I would second the vote for Skaha in Penticton. 50% of the routes there are around 5.10 and it's great weather in April!
And of the 1200 or so routes, ~65% are sport climbs. 5.10-5.11 is really the sweet spot of Skaha climbing, although there are lots of great 12's too (or so I hear since I can't get up a 12). Don't discount a lot of really good 8s and 9s, too.

There's a Facebook group: I love Skaha
...and an infrequently updated web site: http://skaha.org/

If you go, make sure you get the latest guidebook (published 2011?) due to the many new routes, some changes to existing routes, and, especially, the new access from the new parking lots and changes to the trail system since the previous guide. You'll go bat-shit insane trying to use the older guidebooks.
