He slipped back in the shadows and set out walking, a different route, a little longer, but more interesting, including one spot with a corner and then a blind bumped-in alley entrance, where he stepped in smartly, and waited, until the so-called Jack Phineas Wolfe appeared, looking ahead, a little anxious.

What does bumped-in (entrance) mean? an entrance that you come across unexpectedly, because you could not have seen it (thusly blind)?

Thank you.
