This article is a must read for anyone suffering from a pulley injury. I've used the cold therapy (to great effect) to treat two of my own minor A2 tears. I also imagine it works just as well for the rehabilitation of ankle sprains. Depending on the severity of your injury, there's no reason you can't climb at the bluey's. You'll have to be careful with route selection, warm up slowly, stick to an open handed grip, and try not to be egged on by your buddies. I personally found climbing roofs indoor was a great way to still train hard whilst rehabilitating my pulley tears. Best of luck.
