Running Romex in Non-wet Shower walls

I'm renovating my shower/tub right now and have all three walls open around the tub.

At some point in the future im going to be installing an overhead vent and will need to run the armored romex from the attic above the bathroom down to under the house where I have all connections/gang boxes.

My question is if its generally ok to run wiring down the non-wet walls around a tub? I know codes are different in different places in the U.S. To my untrained mind I certainly dont want to run wiring in the wet wall but it seems like it would be ok on the opposite wall or even the side wall of the tub as the chance of water getting in is so remote but I could be missing something.

Thanks!

No code prohibition in a wet or non wet wall around a shower.
