Cisco ASA - can't ping/trace icmp to IP in public IP block

IP block from ISP: x.y.z.32/28

ISP gateway: x.y.z.33
ASA outside: x.y.z.34

permit icmp any outside
access-list in.outside permit icmp any any
global policy: inspect icmp

I can do the following:
packet-tracer input outside icmp 4.4.2.2 8 0 x.y.z.34 detail

This, however, "DROP" by implicit rule - which goes to the implicit "deny any any""
packet-tracer input outside icmp 4.4.2.2 8 0 x.y.z.40 detail

This fails on every IP in the block except the actual IP on the interface.

What am I missing?

maybe it's stupid question, but do you have a route setup?

I don't follow what you mean.

I'm running a packet-tracer on the ASA itself, using one of the IP's in the assigned block.

I can't ping the IP from a remote system - which is why I'm testing the packet-tracer in the first place.

Routing is functioning to the entire subnet, as I have a "static (inside,outside) tcp x.y.z.45 3389 192.168.1.35 3389 netmask 255.255.255.255" which is also working.

The question is why the icmp is dropped with implicit ACL when I have an *explicit* permit icmp any any in the access list on the interface.

On ASA you can only ping from higher security level to lower security level, not vice versa.

More info: this is *not* the only outside facing interface, and it's also not the default route.  I *do* have a /28 route on the remote side to this block.

I am trying to ping from an Internet IP *not in my subnet* to several IP's which are in my subnet.

I can ping the ISP gateway, but not the IP on the outside interface, nor any of the other IP's which are part of my block - some of which I have tcp mappings defined (e.g., static (inside,outside) tcp x.y.z.45 3389 192.168.1.45 3389) so I can't add a 1-to-1 - which would theoretically send the ping to the INSIDE host, not the ASA itself.

Do I need a reciprocating route on this side via this non-default interface to the remote network?   Even if that were true, the packet-tracer shows the incoming icmp "drop" due to implicit rule, not that it is receiving the ping on this interface and replying via the default gateway interface.
