    I'm having difficulties figuring out where the new carbon-carbon bond would form. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Your product should contain a tricyclic substructure.

    Bicyclic, not tricyclic. The important point is what reactive intermediate is formed by the diazo structure.
