Can a path of egress include a reversal of vertical direction?

I have an elevated platform.  A LARGE and very LONG elevated platform.

 

The primary exit is on one end.   The other end has a fire escape ladder that goes... UP... to another platform.  Then it goes DOWN another ladder to a third platform at the same elevation as the first platform.  Then we see the exit door (discharge).

 

I seem to remember a requirement that the path of egress cannot have a reversal of vertical direction.  Is that a real requirement?  Or am I just having a faulty memory?
