Quartz Creek into EF San Juan?

Has anyone ever taken a gander into the last bit of Quartz Creek before it joins with the East Fork San Juan? Looks like a pretty sizeable drainage, maybe comparable to the flow in the actual EF itself. Looking on sat photos reveals some white in a gorge just upstream from the confluence. The EF has the waterfall gorge right next door, would it be unreasonable to assume there is something happening in there?

Or is this another Durango-tang special that we are not allowed to talk about?

When I looked at the lower part it appeared to have gradient and water, but it was a small creek bed. Didn't look like there would be any room to move around and it was overgrown with brush.

The lower gorge is junked out. There's a couple of drops in between sieves and un-runnable choss.
