Hey, I tore my A4 on my ring finger about 2 months ago. I heard 2 loud as hell snaps, like firecrackers when it happened. I didn't climb at all for 2 weeks. Week 3 & 4 i only climbed like once a week and just ran easy laps on 8's and 9's. I kept my finger taped straight to aviod using it. I then took a week off again before climbing. Even then (and now) I'm still SLOWLY ramping up to my old level.

Be glad it's winter and take it easy so that you can have a good summer.

Go see a doc. Make sure you just go to a sports doctor. Even here in Boulder the regular doc didn't know as much as me about the injury. The sports doc had seen many of these injuries though.
