I had something similar 2 weeks ago. Tried holding a swing one handed, heard a noise. No real pain straight away but followed by pain in the palm and forearm.Same as you, tenderness in the ring finger.

I did a lot of stretching and icing for the next 2 weeks. Had a boulder on Friday and felt ok (though a little tight on the forearm, zero finger pain). Then climbed yesterday on it and crimped pretty hard, throwing to edges and felt no ill effects at all.

A friend mentioned that the noise could be a 'sheath' going or even a tendon 'flicking'. I taped by finger well and i could still feel some tightness in the forearm, but it wasn't significant.

I would just play it by ear. If it doesn't hurt, try taping the finger and just doing some easy climbing on it. Gradually increase the load and see how it goes. Hardly worth spending $$ on ultrasounds if you are not in any discomfort.
