I only have 4 days in Boulder, Colorado and want to make the best out of the trip.

Can you suggest good climbing areas (and/or routes) with sport pitches up to 5.12 ?

When you say up to 5.12, do you include 5.12a-d? My suggestions for sport would be:
Boulder Canyon:
Animal World for cooler days.
Easter Rock for warmer days.
Lower Dream Canyon.
Avalon if warm.

Clear Creek has some good sport areas.
Clear Creek:
Highwire and Wall of Justice (right next to each other) for the highest variety.
Wall of 90's for some great 11's and good 12's.
Primo for the best selection of 12's, but few good easier routes (Mineral Museum (9+) and Skipping Stones (11b/c) being exceptions).
Highlander in Clear Creek is also good, but can get hot.
