DOMS after every training-session: a good or a bad thing?

After nearly 4 years of fanatic in- and outdoor climbing, DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) after training has become an increasingly rare fenomenon for me. But after certain types of high-intensity training sessions I do still get DOMS. As soon as I'm fully recovered, usually after 48 to 72 hours, I often feel I've made noticable strength gains.

So I've been thinking about making this into a habit, training three times a week in such a way that I get DOMS each time. The goal is to break through my 7c-plateau into 8a. Needless to say, I'll make sure that I recover almost 100% before the next training. Otherwise the effect will be negative rather than positive.

My question is this: do any of you have any experience with (strength) training for repeated, "perpetual" DOMS? :) And would you recommend or rather advise against it?
