The 6He+6Li elastic scattering and transfer reactions have been studied using a 17.0 MeV 6He beam. The measurements show large cross-sections for $\alpha$ transfer reactions leading to some states at high excitations ( $6\leq E_x \leq 11$ MeV) in 10Be. The results support suggestions that these states have a molecule-like structure and may belong to the same rotational band.
