I've never climbed with leashes before (other then the ones between my axe and harness). I was round a friends flat recently and tried hanging from two straight handled axes without leashes and slipped off straight away. I then tried with leashes and was able to hang one handed for ages.
When do you find leashes beneficial? I can imagine on steep ice they might be pretty good (caveat, I've never climbed steep ice)
