In carrying out such purposes, National Forest Wilderness resources shall be managed to promote, perpetuate, and, where necessary, restore the wilderness character of the land and its specific values of solitude, physical and mental challenge, scientific study, inspiration, and primitive recreation. To that end:
(b) Wilderness will be made available for human use to the optimum extent consistent with the maintenance of primitive conditions.
