Revert the key mapping Caps Lock -> Ctrl. Install Karabiner. Depending on your handedness mapremap alt_L (or opt_L) to ctrl and use alt_R (or opt_R) as your common alt key.

Remapping in the Karabiner context using the first example below means:
if you enable the radio button for "Option_L to Control_L" the left Option key will act as the left (and only on most portable Macs) Control key if hit and lose its original Option key function. The right Option key won't lose its function and still works as a normal Option key.
