EMT in crawlspace vent


I want to get electrical from a crawlspace into an exterior wall in an addition we're adding to avoid running electrical through an attic that will be inaccessible after the drywall is up (vaulted ceiling truss). The foundation has a raised stem wall, so there is no rim joist that would allow access to drill up through the bottom plate. So the only place I can get electrical from the crawlspace to the wall is up through the vents in the raised stem wall as in this picture: . It is ok to have EMT so close to the outside? There is no joint in the EMT within 2 feet of the vent except for the one that will be inside the wall, so I there shouldn't be a moisture problem, but I don't know what the NEC or other codes might say about this.

Try posting the photo again, they don't work on anyone's first post.
