Dropping down to Gray Knob leaves a huge second day that would be tough to finish even in optimal weather. After looking at a map, the best halfway point is Sphinx Col (dropping down to tree line to the east). I've stayed there in the spring when there was a good deal of snow. Assuming a good snow year, it should be a good winter camping spot. And, if the weather turns you can bail into the Great Gulf (no picnic getting out though, and you end up a long way from your vehicles).
Not sure I would schlepp a VE tent all that way. 11 pounds is pretty heavy on top of winter gear. . .
