Help with cleanout locations

I need some help determining where to put some cleanouts on a 2" drain line from a kitchen sink. I have one cleanout already, as the picture shows. I could not put one at the next 90 degree turn because the pipe is up against the joist end plate. Can I put one at the end of the 25 foot run before it goes into the vent stack? It would be facing upstream though, I don't know if that is acceptable or legal. Thanks for the help!

No, you don't want it facing upstream like you pictured. Debris will want to collect in the clean out area. Since you've got a clean out and roughly 33' of line I don't know if I'd bother with another one unless you have a special reason.

Why do you need more clean outs? A 50' snake will run down the entire length from the sink. As for the cleanout on the bottom pix, you don't want a cleanout going against the flow.
