Floor Joist and bathroom venting

you can run your ventilation duct under the finished ceiling along a wall til you get to the joist bay when you can turn it up and go out. Then enclose the duct in a soffit box and covered with the same finish as the bath room.

Top picture is an overview layout of the master bed/bath

Bottom picture shows the change in ceiling height between the bathroom and bedroom (same height) compared to inside the closet height.
I don't get the pic...you haven't explained why you can't go the longer route in between the joists.

Is it way way too far? Is there stuff in the way?
