Don't ascend Athabasca N. Glacier, ascend Silverhorn and descend via N. Glacier. There is potential for ice fall on N. Glacier and ascending puts you in harms way much longer than the descent. Sliverhorn is just a bit more technical, but you should enjoy that aspect of it, makes it feel more like a climb vs hike.
The Victoria southeast ridge ascent via Abbott Hut and descent via the southwest face and down through the Huber ledges
is the best trip on Victoria, by far. True alpine experience vs coming from Lake Louise.
Victoria and Stanley are both good options. The Yoho area you are currently targeting as well as the Abbott Hut (Victoria summit) via Lake O'Hara are two spectacular settings you will enjoy immensely I think.
I can loan you a tent if you need it. Just pm me through here. Peruse my alpine page suggested
routes and same for myscramble page
for other day objectives. Good pubs in Canmore and Banff are too many to mention, but the climber hang out in Canmore, where to catch me on my days off sipping coffee out on the patio shooting the shit, is the Summit Cafe. The local brewery, Grizzly Paw, has been around a bit, and although crowded with tourists at times, still offers good homemade brew. The Flatbread Co specializes in free range Canadian meats and organic produce and has an open air bar on sunny days. Top notch establishment.
Look forward to seeing you in Canmore. Cheers.
