I take it from your comments that you don't have an up-arrow on this
emulation. There are two solutions that I see. In the defaults lynx.cfg,
enable either or both of VI keys or LINKS_AND_FORMS_ARE_NUMBERED. The
former allows the hjkl keys (once you tab off a text entry form or use
CTL-V), or the goto link (same proviso).

Actually there is a third option. Can't you do a KEYMAP in the default
lynx.cfg for mapping the key of your choice to UPARROW?
