Will in go into 6th with the engine off?

If it can be moved into gear with the engine off, then its likely a clutch issue. If it can't be then its more likely a linkage issue.

Are the other gears including reverse all ok? The mechanism on top of the box can seize up.

Synchro knackered by sound of it, have you tried holding clutch down longer going 5th to 6th to allow gearbox more time to slow down see if it still happens?

Sounds like a rebuild or replacement is needed unfortunately.
